D: Goran Rebic, Austria 2003, 90 min, German subtitles

Actually, the old "Danube" has seen better days. The rusty old ship is ready to retire along with its captain Fritz. But then a young man comes on board with a coffin in Vienna with the persons last will and testament which forces the ship and its passengers on a long (last) trip down the Danube towards the Black Sea. Also on board: An orphan child, a cocaine addict, a Transylvanian, a deserter, and other displaced characters. The journey east is two thousand kilometers long. Fespite a brilliant cast with Otto Sander and Robert Stadlober, the real star of director Goran Rebic’s "Boatmovie" is the flow and rhythm of the river.
