The Austin German Language Meetup Group Message Board › New German Meetup - Summer Film: Falco

New German Meetup - Summer Film: Falco

Ulf K.
Group Organizer
Austin, TX
Announcing a new Meetup for the Austin German Language Meetup Group!

What: Summer Film: Falco
When: Saturday, August 6th, 2011 – 8:00pm
Where: Courtyard of Pedernales Lofts, 2401 E. 6th St, Austin, TX

Knee-deep into the Texas summer we figure it to be a swell time to get together, be merry and watch a movie outside while sipping some bubbly.

We ask that you bring drinks (the sparkling variety preferred in keeping with the feature presentation – Prosecco or the like will do just fine). Snacks are also welcome.

About the film: Falco - Verdammt, wir leben noch!
Austria – 2008 – 109 minutes – German with English subtitles
The secondary title translates to "Dammit, we're still alive!"

A poster boy for decadence, Falco­ remains the only artist to ever reach the very top of the US charts with a German language title ("Rock Me Amadeus"). He deftly combined new wave with elements of rap, wrote lyrics that were often brilliant and sometimes highly controversial, and sold it all under a guise of snooty Viennese pseudo-aristocracy. This biopic portrays Falco's life and career of the 1980s, to which he himself famously referred to as follows: "Whoever can remember the eighties, didn't experience them." Think drugs, narcissism, tumultuous relationships and the struggle to escape the fate of the one-hit-wonder.
