DER COWBOY WEINT
Director: Eckhard Theophil
Short film | D | 2001
36th Hof International Film Festival
Nina and Mechthild, two young probation officers, do their jobs mechanically without the least desire to really help the down and outs they’re dealing with. One Saturday evening, half-heartedly gearing up for a night on the town, they meet ever-optimistic cowboy Rudi Rembrand. Despite his intimate acquaintance with social security, borstals and jail he knows how to have a good time. Which in this special case he should rather have missed out on.
