Tell me more (don't worry, no spoilers)

Enter the sinister world of Austrian cinema: A door-to-door salesman (Florian Nolden) gets a train to a mysterious suburb, and continuously returns to the same train station to start his day over and over again. 

8:30 is a satirical gag about urban dislocation, capitalism, and Google Street View. The weirdness of identikit suburbia, and the blurring of lines between reality and fiction in the digital age all come to the fore in Laura Nasmyth's masterful debut. Stylish, atmospheric, Lynchian, and loaded with dry wit, this is one of the film discoveries of the year.
