The Bosom Friend


The film portrays René Rupnik, a 50-year-old math teacher who lives with his elderly mother, barricaded behind the heaps of trash, paper and newspapers he has amassed on the street over decades of hoarding. In his fantasies, the obsessive bosom expert lives together with Senta Berger, the famous Viennese actress he has worshipped for decades. He has seen all her films, collected all her photos. He only met her once, outside Vienna's Burgtheater, where he attended her show fifty times. With his new binoculars in the standing room area.
