Storyline

This story of the miller Florian, who gave all his money to the war against Napoleon, is loosely based on a true story. After the war, Florian's reimbursement is challenged, and he must also pay taxes on his destroyed mill. He resists the tax collectors and takes off to Vienna, where he intends to defend his rights. On the way, he rescues the Duchess of Guastalla from assault. She also wants to go to Vienna, as His Majesty Franz II is trying to contest an heir in her favor. With cunning, luck, and dagger, Florian fights his way through a slew of nobility and their secret police. In the end, he acquires multiple titles, and the Duchess acquires him.

Krug's Stand up show
12 April 2009 | by See all my reviews

This pretty fast paced/talking picture is a showcase for Mr. Manfred Krugs comedic "talent". Not that he's a comedy genius, but he does a decent enough job here. The movie of course made his name and he flew from Eastern Germany shortly afterwards. I don't know the exact details of that, but I'm sure they can be read somewhere on this page or some other place on the internet.

The movie is pretty silly and therefor you have to really lower your expectations and just try to get with the flow. The thing is, that the movie itself stays within it's own set of rules. Which is why I gave it a good rating.
