A life without mobile phones, laptops and LCD TVs - many people
would happily leave behind the blessings of our high-tech age
few actually manage to do it. This documentary presents three such
people. All have decided to live in the past - and not just for
a weekend, as a bit of fun - but for their whole lives.
Götz Ernst Arnulf Boyneburg lives the life of an Oscar Wilde
type dandy in his castle with his butler, while restaurateur
Raja Schwahn-Reichmann has immersed herself in the Baroque world
Maria Teresia. Singer Franz Wenzl, also known as "Austrofred",
believes himself to be the reincarnation of pop icon Freddy Mercury,
and is utterly convinced that he was destined to live in the
1980s. A rather strange but utterly healthy attitude to life!
