This Austrian adaptation of Aristophanes' satirical comedy Lysistrata was retitled Triumph of Love for American consumption. Left unchanged is the original premise of the centuries-old play: To bring a long and destructive war to an end, the womenfolk of Athens vow to withhold sex from their husbands until the men come to their senses. This "love strike" has widespread political ramifications, many of which are given a contemporary slant by screenwriter Kaspar Loser. For obscure reasons, the settings in Triumph of Love are appropriately Athenian, but the costuming is inappropriate and anachronistic.
