Antares is a 2004 Austrian film directed by Götz Spielmann. It was Austria's submission to the 77th Academy Awards for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, but was not accepted as a nominee. The movie is a sexual drama that focuses on adultery, abusive relationships, and sexual frustration. Critics claim that the film also explores the relationship between Austria and its former empire through immigration.
A car accident connects the lives of a nurse (Petra Morzé), a supermarket checkout girl (Susanne Wuest), and a real-estate agent (Andreas Kiendl), all involved in complex and dysfunctional relationships.
