"Dieser Film ist das Kinodebüt des österreichischen Oscar® Preisträgers Stefan Ruzowitzky. 1996 entstanden, im Wiener Jugendmilieu angesiedelt, flott und amüsant inszeniert. Ein Rave-Movie um einen knapp 18-jährigen Ausreißer, der sich als Fahrradbote verdingt, sich bei seinen Fahrten in aufregende Tagträume hinein spinnt und schließlich nicht mehr zwischen Realität und Fantasie zu unterscheiden vermag. Seine Erfahrungen mit Musikvideos erleichterten es Ruzowitzky, die rasenden Rhythmen und den hämmernden Beat in einem für die Zuschauer geradezu stroboskopartig wirkenden Filmschnitt bildlich einzufangen. Das Tempo des Rave bestimmt auch den Lebensstil der Protagonisten."--Container

"Eine alleinerziehende Musikerin aus Mannheim wird in eine Schweizer Casting-Show eingeladen, zu der sie ihr hyperaktiver Sohn heimlich angemeldet hat. Doch auch ihre hochneurotische Familie verspricht sich von dem Trip nach Zürich eine nach allen Seiten offene Verjüngungskur, was zum albtraumhaften Road Trip führt, dessen kollektive Erschütterung aber in allgemeine Versöhnung mündet. Turbulente Komödie, die souverän mit einem musikalisch-klanglichen Konzept operiert. Aus dem Psycho-Zirkus familiär einschlägig vorbelasteter Extremfälle ragen die großartigen Schauspieler heraus, die ihren ganz eigenen Klang in den "Unglückssound" bringen, was das dysfunktionale Panoptikum zum Erlebnis werden lässt."
