Storyline

Bavarian comedian Gerhard Polt caricatures a German family on their vacation in Italy. The beer-bellied father and his wife, their spoilt son and the old couple in the adjoining deck-chairs; they spend each day on the same spot on the same beach, day-dreaming, leaving their junk in the sand and making racist comments about Italians. After all Italy would be a perfect place without the Italians... Written by Lutz van Hasselt <willwink@pool.informatik.rwth-aachen.de>

Great parody
13 September 2002 | by (Biberach, Germany) – See all my reviews

I guess it highly depends on your personal taste of humour but in my opinion this movie is just fabulous.

It doesn't have a lot of action, "just" several dream sequences hold together by a day on the beach. But all of the sequences exactly mimic some sort of stereotypes, mainly about german tourists as they are deemed.

And if you've ever kept an eye on those behaviors you will love this (in parts even sarcastic) movie. You won't roll on the floor laughing but you'll definitely smirk and grin all the time.
