I know Mavie from the time she lived in Berlin. She had a small dog called Attila (like her great-uncle Attila Hörbiger, the Dienstmann in the Third Man, or was this his brother Paul? It was the father-projection of Isabelle Adjani in Claude Miller’s film The Eye Of the Beholder (Mortelle randonnée), Michel Serrault following his daughter-projection through France) and a Smart car. It was Mavie (“my life” in French), the dog and the car. They where a perfect set designed by some smartass in the valley. MaVie, MonChien, MaCaisse. She played theatre in Hannover. Lulu in a version by Moritz von Uslar. She was a star for being Heidi in a German comedy. Film loves her. All her glamour explodes on the screen. She went to Basel to play more theatre. She married, got pregnant, and moved with her husband to Vienna. Thomas Bernhard said the Austrians don’t respect anything but actors. Her husband is also an actor. A very famous one. Mavie plays now at the Burgtheater. It’s the Hörbiger legacy. The Burgtheater is the olymp of acting. At least if you are into theatre. Mavie has two children now. Wilma and Peter. MaVie. MonMarie. MonTheatre. Designed by Hörbiger.
Frittatensuppe is the most delicious soup you can get in Austria. It’s a crazy mixture between Brühe and Eierkuchen. The Eierkuchen (egg pancakes) is sliced in tiny pieces and is floating in the Brühe (broth). It looks like an uncomplicated and not very spectacular meal. But it’s an explosion of taste. When the Brühe flows down your throat and the spongy slices of the Eierkuchen remain in your mouth, you almost feel like you are a real Austrian Madl. It’s spectacular and an explosion of taste. You can get a tiny little bowl of it for just 1.20€ everywhere. Spectacular. Spectacular. Spectacular. Last week I went to the doctor having a full health check up. He said my cholesterol level would be way to high. I think it’s the devilish Frittatensuppe. I can’t get enough of it. Teufelszeug.
