Movie Details

A novice immigration officer falls for a woman he's supposed to put behind bars in this low-key romantic comedy. Rudi (Martin Puntigam) is a twenty-something police offer working in a small town in Austria. Rudi would like to advance his career to something a bit more challenging, and his brother-in-law Bucek (Josef Hader) decides to help out by getting him a job working with him in Vienna's immigration bureau. Rudi is eager to please and wants to impress Bucek on the job, but it's what he does on his own time that gets him in trouble. Rudi meets and quickly becomes infatuated with Alena (Sandra Bra), who works at a fast food restaurant. After Rudi's been dating Alena for a while, he discovers that she's from Czechoslovakia and working in Vienna illegally, and Bucek is none too amused to discover his brother-in-law is helping someone violate the laws he's supposed to be upholding. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
