Fun Without Limits
Filmfest 2010

Whether in the countryside or on the edge of the city, amusement parks or fun fairs are hot across Europe. Their names, amusement parks and fun fairs, say it all: People want to be amused, they want to have fun. For example, at the Europark in southern Germany a dummy with a contorted face sits in an electric chair. Smoke comes out of him and a light flickers off and on in the roasted “brain” of the dummy, which shudders and cries in pain. A film on the culture of amusement in today's “leisure” society.
