The Migrants

After the great film success for the Kammerspiele updated.
(Audience Awards at Max Ophüls Festival and Nashville Film Festival)

Viennese migration comedy, really now, Oida.

Nevertheless, because of their appearance the two are approached by an ambitious TV editor who is looking for typical foreigners to take part in her TV documentary series about an ethnically mixed Viennese quarter.

Following a sudden whim, Marko and Benny pretend to be small-time migrants who keep their heads above water with crooks. The duo of friends use all possible and impossible xenophobic clichés without hesitation. And while the two of them make the TV series a success by fulfilling all their prejudices against foreigners, at the same time they deal for the first time with real integration fates - also with their own...
