All of the films collected on this DVD have in common a focused and precise observation of spatial structures. Whether interiors, spaces that have to do with the material or cinematic spaces, whether the city of Calcutta or specific places in Vienna: Scheugl follows not only a precise plan, but also a linear - albeit not causal - logic of narration, which is based on a simple chronological progression "one thing after another."
(Dietmar Schwärzler)
