Die Josef-Trilogie tells the story of the five woodcutters Josef, Josef, Josef, Josef and Josef, who bide their monochrome time in the Austrian mountains. They dream of Canada, but are only able to scrape together enough for an Opel Rekord. A young female mountain farmer who wishes to escape her abusive father, talks the five Josefs into a coup attempt, which fails and thwarts their hopes for an early departure. Seven years later, the Josefs finally manage to leave the continent in order to embrace a new, more colourful future in Canada. But this new world turns out to be sham and flickers in front of the Josefs like soap operas on motel room screens. Thomas Woschitz has created a crazy road movie with off-the-wall humor and a surprise ending. It is a real pleasure to watch the four Josefs on their travels, which have some tricky curves and unexpected detours in store.
