EU Film days 5/29: Komm, süßer Tod

Friday, the Swedish embassy showed the Austrian film, Come Sweet Death (Komm, süßer Tod). Directed by Wolfgang Murnberger and based on a novel by Wolf Haas, It's a dark comedy about a ex-detective, Brenner, who starts working on an ambulance crew. A nurse on the crew is murdered, and Brenner plays the detective for the force while finding foul play with the help of a childhood crush.
This film is apparently the big thing to come out of Austria in recent years. It was a fun film and I had no problem getting though it. The wife of the Austrian embassy's cultural attache (she looked 25) was at the viewing, and she explained some of the techiniques they used to translate the film, interesting.
