Andreas und der Knochenmann

62 min

Something just happened again.

No one wanted to believe...

this could happen in our own backyard.

But as soon as the story was out,

the finger-pointing began.

Some blamed it on money.

On greed.

Others blamed it on sex.

And others said it was our modem times,

the godless and egotistical society.

The Austrians blamed the non-Austrians.

And the vegetarians said that...

eating meat was what started it all.

But here's what I say:

They were all wrong.

If it weren't for love

none of this would have happened.

What do they mean by 1:3?

One part antifreeze, three parts water.

That's 4.5 liters.

4.5 liters? -Yes.

That's too much water.

Works without water down to -73C.

Any amount of water is fine.

Wait, that means three parts water...

plus one third antifreeze.

Not one third, one fourth!

Use your head.

How is it going to freeze here?

You're asking me?

-15C tops.

It doesn't get any colder?

Not here in the West.

You sure?

Different climate.

In South America, for example in Brazil...

it's summer now.

I know that!

You think I'm an idiot?

But it's winter here.

Still a different climate.

Good evening.

I don't think 3 parts water will even fit.

That hurts!

Stop it!

Should I have a look?


Next time I'm buying it pre-mixed.

Go have a look!

That's what I said.

Go on!

I'm going.

Where are you?


Left? Right?

Over here.

Shall we go?

Why do you keep me waiting?

I'm here now.

Where are we eating?

A cool place, American.

With motorcycles on the walls.

What kind?

Real ones.

On the walls?

Yeah, I thought you'd like that.

F*** the motorcycles,

the food is what counts!

Get in the car!

What's going on here?


Wait here!

You have the keys?


- Hand them over!

Please, money was tight.

I'll pay somehow...

Be reasonable, please!

- No!

You should have paid on time!

I know,

but I need the car, please.


You got 3 reminders, right?

I'm a single mom,

We need to get to kindergarten. Please.

Talk to the leasing company!


Please, step aside!

Let me out on the other side of the bridge.

A small beer!

Hi, Brenner.



This is Isabel!


- Hi!

We met last night at the Sky bar.


Have a nice day.

Can you take care of one more?

Berti, I've had it. I'm sick of this job.

C'mon, please.

Besides, I'm going away.

Where to?

- The country.


That's where I need you.

Berti, I lied.

I only said that...

because I thought

you wanted me here in the city.

It's just a short drive.

Yeah, right.

An artist.

An artist?

- Yeah, some nutty painter.

Drove out this summer,

and no word from him since.

Deliver the third reminder,

and you're done.

Go yourself.



What kind of car?.

A lemon yellow Beetle.

A lemon yellow Beetle?

They're so cute.

They've got little vases in them for flowers.


Hi. What can I get you?

Black coffee, extra water.

Do you have guest rooms?

- Upstairs.

You want a room?

No, a guest.

We're empty.

It's off-season.

I'm looking for Mr. Horvath.


What do you mean "why"?

Why should he be here?

Is he here or isn't he?

There's no Horvath here.

His car is parked out front.

I'll be right back.

What do you want?

- I'm looking for Horvath.

Who's that?

- A painter.

A painter.

I didn't want that much extra water.

No more coffee.

The machine is broken.

A small beer.

We're not open yet.


- Really.

Nice hospitality for a guest house.

We're an inn,

but you were on your way out.

Enjoy your job!

Forgot your cigarettes.

What can I get you?

I'm not thirsty anymore.

You a journalist?


There's no Horvath here.

Then why is his car out front?

What car?

I don't care if the company makes a profit,

here's my offer:

We have four people already.

If we get one more,

I'll give you this blanket worth 49.90...

for just 40 euros even.

Who's in?

40 euros even!

No, I didn't order anything.

Go ahead.

Retiree's Club is paying.

I'm not with them.


You know Horvath?

Oh, you're the guy.

Are you a cop?

- No.

Private eye?

Who are you?

- The boss.

Pauli, stop chatting and get back to work.

Here you go, Mr...


Mr. Brenner.


Well what?

- The car.

Did it reappear to you?

Maybe it's global warming,

and we're starting to get

fat a morganas here too.

You know what?

Spare me your jokes.

I have enough fun in life.

Yeah, that's how you look.

How do I look?

- Like someone who has fun in life.

Chicken's on the house.

I don't like chicken.

You'll like ours.

Give this gentleman some chicken.

I'm not eating it.

Then don't.

Excuse me.

Can I ask you something?

- You can ask.


Can I leave a message for him?

For whom?

Can't you talk to me in normal tone of voice?

Like you're doing?

My regards to Horvath

if you see him.

Tell the jerk to pay,

or we repossess his car. OK?

How much does he owe?

I don't know, it's in the car.

Find out, and I'll get it for you.

I want 20,000 for starters.

You'll never leave me alone.

Forget it!

- I'll be back!

Mind if I join you?

What do you want?

You have a license?

A license?

As a private investigator.

As a forklift operator.

I'm not some stupid country kid.

What do you want?

I might have a job for you.

If you're a professional.

Money keeps disappearing.

Be more careful.

- I know who it is.

My father.

Your father?.

And which one of you is the boss?
