Original Title: Rossini oder die mörderische Frage, wer mit wem schlief.... Filmscript
Filmscript - with an essay by Patrick Süskind. In spite of all their differences, the guests of the Italian restaurant Rossini have one thing in common: they are all singles who have made the restaurant their second home. They use it as a living room and office, for private and social arguments, as a forum for self-portrayal, and as a stage for their erotic comedies and tragedies. They are all, in some wondrous way, involved with one another: hopeless love, hate, jealousy and friendships between men which survive everything else... The tragicomic embroilments are made even more turbulent by the appearance of a young actress with the fairy tale name of Snow-white, and they culminate in the defeat and triumph of the protagonists.
