Storyline

'Clemence M. Schönborn''s first feature film is a typical Austrian black comedy, dealing with an easy-going forty-something, who likes playing games with others, which has serious consequences... Phyllis, in her early 40s, still lives together with her mother, whom she loves and hates at the same time. When she gets to know Henry, supporting actor of a soap opera, she pretends to love him, but sleeps with the show's lead actor Walter, whom she finally runs over with her car, which makes Henry the show's new star - and the new lover of the lead actress Doris. However, Phyllis isn't done with him... Written by fippi2000

Breaking hearts, breaking bones
6 February 2008 | by richard_sleboeSee all my reviews

Out of the blue, forty-something Phyllis finds herself surrounded by a host of small-time actors starring as fellow doctors in a run-of-the-mill TV show: slick Walter, lovable Henry, crazy Doris. Phyllis keeps it real, but somehow manages to out-act them all over the course of this delightful black comedy. Clemens Schönborn's debut feature is light, but tasty - a combination just as rare in movies as it is in snacks. "Fräulein Phyllis" is a fresh and funny variation of the classic "what a girl wants" theme. The fabulous Sophie Rois with her cheeky smiles, raspy singing, and reckless driving makes a perfect Phyllis, leaving a trail of broken hearts and garbled bodies in her wake. She's always one lie, or one kill, ahead of the game. Watch out for Gudrun Tielsch and her fresh take on the old-time favorite of the crazy dog lady. Charming jazzy score by Max Knoth. Notable appearance by Lukas Miko as a self-righteous sex tourist turned unsuspecting drug mule.
