“Der Kilometerfresser” (The Kilometre Eater) doesn’t travel around the world in 80 days, but straight across central Europe in 80 minutes.
A bet leads Ernest, a motorsport competitor, to ride his Norton motorcycle from Switzerland to the Tyrol and then on into Italy. To prevent Ernest from taking any shortcuts, his friend, a journalist, is always close at hand – and they play a few tricks on each other … For decades, the film was thought to be lost, but in 2002 it was rediscovered and restored by Filmarchiv Austria. Florian C. Reithner composed the music for the film in 2007. The Vienna Concert Band, which was formed in 2014, is composed of wind players from Vienna and the surrounding area.
