one of the best commentaries on early 8ties Munich
it's quite (!!!) difficult for a non-German to get the point of this mid-8ties TV-series of Helmut Dietl, but i have to admit as a right now thirty-something that this is one of my best childhood/teenage TV-experiences ever. full of ironic Bavarian laissez-Faire, post-Schwabing wanna-be state-of-the-art chic, with a lot of tongue-in-cheek humor that only the people can relate to that actually have been there at that time.
nothing can beat "kir royal" just because it's so good. but right behind it's "monaco Franze".
also the acting of Helmut Fischer and Ruth-Maria Kubitschek is one of the performances displayed on German TV.
if you ever get hold of the DVD-version of this series you will laugh your ass off cos you get a grip of Bavarian thinking and lifestyle.
