Hotel Colonial (1987) Poster


Marco Venieri: Why do they call you Werner?

Werner: Sit down, please. Well, because... because my name is Werner. Why?

Marco Venieri: Well, because Werner is a German name.

Werner: I... I know. During the war, eh? During the war, a German, a certain Herbert... uh... a certain Herbert helped my father to escape from the concentration camp the day before his execution. So, in memory of this effort, my father named me Werner.

Marco Venieri: [pause] It seems like they should have called you Herbert.

Werner: Well, because my... my mother didn't like the name Herbert. And my father, who was just back from the war, didn't want another war with my mother. He must have said "Werner? Okay, Werner. As long as it's German."
