SYNOPSIS

One night, one murder - A forbidden passion and a big family secret.

As the members of the Ullich family gather at their palace in Vienna, their deceased ancestors suddenly appear and usher in a series of unforeseen events. Not only does the past unexpectedly become the present, criminal machinations are also revealed to be at work in a world in which ethics have been discarded and profit seems to be the main goal. On this journey through different eras, the young entrepreneur Philip Ullich and his newly alive great-aunt Renate fall for each other. While Philip battles his cousin for control of the family business, the ancestors reveal the true origins of the Ullich fortune. In this struggle it all comes down to who can be trusted in this web of lies, secrets and love affairs. It‘s a world where even death doesn‘t mean the end.

QUOTES

»Delightfully weird concept, engaging mystery plotline, and certainly relevant to an American audience, even if it's specifically about Austria's history.« – USER

»融合奇幻元素的電影總能讓人忽略(或者說原諒)電影某些技術上的缺點以及某些細節的不合邏輯。
德國電影的題材真的很注重在轉型正義、納粹、極左極右,從家庭爭產衍生出國家的歷史共業,天才!令人驚嘆!« – USER

»Der zweite Spielfilm von Regisseur Virgil Widrich ist ein ungewöhnlich-fantasievolles Kammerspiel mit vielen interessanten Facetten und Ideen« – USER

»The Night of a Thousand Hours is a living depiction of a family history. The mysteries are revisited.« – PRODUCER
