Wild Mouse

When he's fired, a classical music critic embarks on a campaign of revenge against his editor, in this hilarious Austrian comedy in the vein of Woody Allen and Larry David.

Respected and knowledgeable, Georg (Josef Hader, also writer and director) has occupied the prestigious classical music critic role for a Viennese newspaper for decades. But times are changing in the media business, and Georg is fired and replaced with someone younger and cheaper. Pretending to his wife that nothing has changed, Georg spends his time running a rundown rollercoaster with an old school friend. All the while he plots revenge against the editor who fired him, mostly in the form of juvenile acts of vandalism. Sardonic comedy Wild Mouse is filled with witty scenarios, and an unforgettable half-naked snow-bound chase scene.

Effortlessly fun. – Stephen Dalton, The Hollywood Reporter

Best known in German-speaking territories as a top cabaret entertainer, Josef Hader … makes his directorial debut with his own script for Wild Mouse, an acerbic satire which targets the same bourgeoisie and its ludicrously ugly underbelly barely dissimulated by perfectly tailored manners. – Dan Fainaru, ScreenDaily
