Synopsis: A deadly car crash sets off three parallel stories of women at crisis points, faltering behind the doors of the same, plain Vienna apartment block. A bored nurse with a stable, comfortable family life has a wild but almost-wordless extramarital affair with a fashion-conscious traveling salesman, who's obsessed with sex photos. An unstable young Austrian grocery checker lies to hold on to her philandering Yugoslavian boyfriend, claiming she's pregnant. Finally, a recent divorcée whose violent, ex-husband is a King of Denial intent on getting her back. Will the residents' fibs and moral failures save or destroy them ? Can the women safely express their fears ?

Which girlfriend?


You don't know her.

All right,

but ask your dad too.

Slavicza has wreaked havoc

in my CDs again.

I can't find any

Bon appetit.

Dr. Schneider.

What did he want?

Blah, blah, how I'm doing,

what's new, is everything okay?

Whether I still go swimming

once a week? Shit like that.

I told him I don't really have

time for this...

- Mrs. Reichold?

- Vomited twice.

She's not doing

too good at all.

Then suddenly he goes:

Mrs. Keinrath, I'll get back to you

in a couple of hours. Bye.

His wife probably

walked in right then.

Mrs. Zipfer...

Being discharged tomorrow.

- Granddaughter's picking her up...

- Really? Nice girl. I like her.

So then a few hours later

he really calls...

A man's last suit

has no pockets.

We've lost sight of that,

thus our current global state.

Let's go to sleep,

shall we?

A man's last suit

has no pockets.


I don't feel like sleeping.

I'd rather think.

If I don't, no one will.

What do you think about?

You don't know beforehand.

You can't will yourself

to think,

you gota let it happen.

Then ideas

just come to you.

You try that

when you've got some time.

I'll make us

some more coffee.

Has he fallen asleep?

No, not really,

he's just dozing.

It's quiet tonight.

- Morning.

- Morning.

- Morning.

- How was it?

- Quiet.

- Morning.

- Morning.

- What are you doing in Vienna?

- I wanted to see you again.

How did you know

I work here?

I called your number.

Was that your daughter?

I didn't think

we'd see each other again.

How long

are you staying?

I might be able

to come back tonight.

I'll wait here.

- What kept you?

- Things were chaotic last night. Bye.

Hello. You're late.

- Coffee?

- Yes, please.

It was really chaotic.

The obscene elevator scribbler

struck again...

Yes, I noticed.

I'm on duty again tonight.

But we've got concert tickets.

I know, but Uschi is sick

and Monika's on vacation.

I'm sorry.

Why don't you call

your sister?

She always says

she's so lonely.

She locked herself out again.

What a scaterbrain.

I'm going for a jog.

Can you turn it down?

Your mom's sleeping.

Good morning.

Did you sleep well?
