sequel to Wirtshaus im Spessart
5 May 2002 | by (Wales, UK) – See all my reviews

This sequel takes place several hundred years after the original movie "Wirthaus im Spessart". The robbers have long been caught and sentenced to death and killed, now their ghosts have returned to the castle of the contessa who once befriended their leader. There, they find her grand-grand-grand..... daughter, and decide to help her out to pay for their sins in their lives.

Once again it is a romantic comedy, this time with a few ghost sidekicks thrown in, and lots of slapstick humour that kids like. My favourite part has to be the musical number "Woll'n wir doch mal sehn ob's nicht Gespenster gibt in Bonn" - hillarious!

However, I'm not sure how much it would appeal to adults.
