  • Danube Hospital (Donauspital): FIDMarseille Review - The Hollywood Reporter
    A quiet ode to the reassuringly dull super-efficiency of the Austrian healthcare system, Nikolaus Geyrhalter's Danube Hospital (Donauspital SMZ- OST) examines Vienna's second-biggest medical facility with a suitably 'clinical' detachment.

    Illuminating, occasionally wince-inducing documentary assembled with quietly competent professionalism.
    Neil Young
