by Oliver Rihs Special Screenings

For his 45th birthday, filthy rich bon vivant Wolfgang invites three former school friends to his magnificent estate in the Provence. His intention is to paint the town red, just like they did back in the good old days. However, times have changed and everybody but ‘Wolfi’ has settled down into a life centred on family and children. But much more than family and age, newly acquired bourgeois morals thwart the plans of these former party animals until their previously glorified shared history is sliced apart piece by piece and laid as an offering upon the altar of friendship. Ten years after the cult film SCHWARZE SCHAFE, Oliver Rhis once again delights with a bitingly ironic comedy.
