This film, the debut feature by one of the world's most idiosyncratic documentary filmmakers, consists of several intersecting stories, all occurring on a sweltering summer weekend in a Viennese suburb. In the oppressive atmosphere of cookie-cutter housing tracts, manicured lawns, and logo-emblazoned strip malls, the behavior of the characters deteriorates accordingly. These include a jealous young man who torments his girlfriend, an elderly widower who tries to squeeze his housekeeper into his ex-wife's image, a divorced couple who still occupy the same house, an unscrupulous burglar-alarm salesman who creates his own business, a middle-aged teacher victimized by her sexually depraved boyfriend and his psychotic buddy, and a hitchhiker who provokes drivers with comments about sex, hygiene, and the contents of a frankfurter. Trapped in their loneliness, small time dreams and ambitions, the chemistry of human relationships is treated like cancer--enormous growths that, unchecked, lead to disease
