Storyline

In this East German teen musical, a group of girls are planning to take their summer vacation together on the Baltic coast. When a loud and obnoxious group of boys intrudes on their holiday, the girls are horrified to learn that the boys have the same vacations plans as them. The two groups quarrel with each other and compete over a number of things, but gradually an attraction starts to form. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Frankie and Annette go Commie!
27 February 2001 | by See all my reviews

Imagine Frankie and Annette taking a vacation with nine guys and 10 girls. Now imagine them as Communist youth, spreading the joys of collectivism and the freedom to have sex with whomever they please! Unbelievably catchy songs, surreal choreography (including dancing haystacks), and a kitschy script make this a must-see for anyone who loves tractor musicals.
