Cast

Matúš

Matus is a young, 30-year-old man, a musician. He’s strange, different than the ones around him. In his existence there is something excluding him from society: he’s a mixture of an aristocrat and a punk. With traces of feminine features in his face, he still seems interesting and attractive. He’s a talented musician, a cellist, a bit introverted, but self-confident, hiding his pride. He likes to joke and is a bit sarcastic. He’s not really himself and likes to pretend he’s someone else. He can also be very honest and music means everything to him. He’s a good person, but he likes to act as somebody who wants to be bad. He doesn’t like to show his good and sensitive side.

Bartosz Bielenia

In 2019 he played the leading role in the film Corpus Cristi directed by Jan Komasa. The film was nominated on OSCAR for best International feature film.

Albert

Albert is a noble aristocrat and an attractive man. He’s successful, famous, a (great) talent discovered in the past and a good musician. He met Matus in Berlin, and later settled in Vienna. He’s now a programming director of a well-known Viennese chamber orchestra. Albert has become a slave of money and a part of the worldly society. But despite all that, Albert is still just a person and hides something fragile and human inside himself.

Sabin Tambrea

Born in Romania in 1984, grew up in a family of artists. From the age of four he learned the art of playing the violin, then also the viola and took part in competitions like „Jugend musiziert“ where he won first places several times. Despite his success as a musician, he was drawn to acting and in 2006 he began studying at the Ernst Busch Academy of Dramatic Arts in Berlin. He was one of the most formative young actors of the last ten years at the „Berliner Ensemble“. In the film, he was casted as the legendary Bavarian King LUDWIG II (2012) and prevailed over three hundred other actors. His art of acting won him the Bavarian Film Prize and the New Faces Award among others. A statement by Sabin Tambrea describes quite well his view of facing up to the tasks, even if they seem laborious at first: When asked if he could ride, he answered: „Yes, I can ride, but I only have to learn to“. In the recent times, Tambrea played Narcissus for the film-adaptation of Hermann Hesse’s novel of the century NARZISSUS AND GOLDMUND, directed by Academy Award Winner Stefan Ruzowitzy, which opened in March 2020 shortly before all cinemas were closed. With LA GOMERA he was at the Cannes Film Festival 2019 and in BABYLON BERLIN (season three) he played a charismatic actor in the UFA film of the 30’s.
