The seldom screened centerpiece out of Eckhart Schmidt’s cinema period in the 80ies which was inspired by Punk, New Wave and neon-esthetics: distantly and mysteriously oscillating between lurking pretense and yawning abyss, dreamily adolescent curiosity and bloody awakening. Young Patricia wanders through a Viennese night full of lust for love, visions of drugs and violence, gleaming frenzy and dark alleys. DAS GOLD DER LIEBE (the gold of love) in her heart, music of Die Neue Deutsche Welle in her ears and wanderlust till dawn.
