RIMINI

Feature Film, AT/DE/FR 2022, 114 min, dOF

A former pop star sings and boozes against reality in wintry Rimini. Ulrich Seidl’s new film, which celebrated its world premiere in the competition at this year’s Berlinale, is a multi-layered portrait of a staggering man, formulated with his usual harshness, offset with surprising tenderness. In RIMINI, Michael Thomas, Austria’s best crooner, is on stage, Inge Maux and Claudia Martini inspire as his fans.
