Feature Film | Michael Ostrowski, Helmut Köpping | 2016
Mao inherits her Uncle Waberl’s run-down hotel in the middle of nowhere and in the spirit of sex, drugs & rock ’n’ roll tries to save it with the help of her goofy loser friends – hobby rock stars Max and Jerry. Soon our heroes find themselves defending the inheritance against hostile competition, high finance, a phony gardener, a hot-tempered inspector, and their own ineptitude. It is the beginning of a brilliantly flamboyant tour de force, a madcap mix of Peter Alexander, Louis de Funès, kebab spread, and post-punk Iggy Pop. Hallefuckinlujah!
In memory of Michael Glawogger
With HOTEL ROCK 'N' ROLL Michael Ostrowski and co-director Helmut Köpping give us the virtuoso finale of the sex, drugs & rock ’n’ roll trilogy begun by Michael Glawogger, who died in Liberia in 2014. Futschikato Masalani forever!
