German, Bulgarian, and Romani with English subtitles. In an underworld, against the backdrop of the Danube and Vienna’s skyline, live the underdogs of respectable society. Sporting leather jackets, these Bulgarian Roma men play and seduce Marlon Brando style. They moved here in search of adventure, freedom and to earn money for their families, but poverty forces them to sell their bodies instead. Sucked into an inescapable nocturnal life, they spend their nights waiting, smoking, drinking and servicing their customers. They call it 'doing business' to make a clear distinction between work and pleasure. But there is a ray of comfort in their feeling of togetherness, despite being so far from home. "The film is supposed to be a homage to these young guys. I wanted them to be heroes, their beauty to be visible. I wanted a film that sparkles. I’m not the police; I’m a filmmaker." Director Patric Chiha CFF 15
