Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
This film which is Austria's entry for the Academy Awards, explores the dreams and, philosophical musings of a young Austrian soldier as wrestles with an obsession with sex and his romantic ideals. Berger, like other young Austrian men must complete his required service in the army. He is a quiet sort and an indifferent soldier. Most of his time is spent daydreaming in the latrine where he carves an elaborate medieval scene on the back of the door. Like most young men in his unit, Berger is looking to get laid as frequently and as impersonally as possible. But in his strange recurring dreams he longs for romance and chivalry.
