For God And Country

This autobiographical Austrian feature (1994) by Wolfgang Murnberger is likable, even if it’s not especially compelling as plot. It focuses on the erotic fantasies, medieval and otherwise, of a bored and alienated 18-year-old private, the son of a movie-theater manager, stationed on the border between Austria and Hungary in 1980. (His dreams are in black and white, but the remainder of the film is in color.) Well acted and nicely filmed. (JR)
