Storyline

In diesem beeindruckenden Film werden die schrecklichen Jahre des 2. Weltkriegs aus der Sicht des Fleischhauers Bockerer, der das Nazi-Regime kategorisch ablehnt und das durch seine natuerliche Art mehr als deutlich zum Ausdruck bringt, lebensnah aufgezeigt. Written by <e.o@strath.ac.uk>

An Austrian jewel
26 September 2003 | by (Melbourne. Australia) – See all my reviews

I have discovered a German dvd of Der Bockerer and the sequel, Austria is free. Neither with any subtitles. These are absolute gems and it just beats me why the Austrians do not make them available with multiple subtitles for the whole world to appreciate. The acting is outstanding and the grim background to the black humour makes a very powerful story. A classic of the cinema.
