No one knows it, but it is one of my favorite films
10 March 2005 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

This movie is one of my favorite films because I also come from East Germany and I like Trabis! If you don't know a Trabi: "Trabi" is the short form of "Trabant", a little car that nearly Everyone had in the GDR, even it was not very comfortable. Udo Struutz, the main character of the film, loves his Trabi, calls it "Schorsch" and treats him like a real family member. So in the first summer after the Berlin Wall has fallen he travels to Naples with his wife Rita and their 17-year-old daughter Jacqueline. Their guide is "Italienische Reise" (Italian Voyage) by the famous German writer Johann Wolfgang von Goethe from the year 1787. Of course their holidays are not without complications. The fact of the film that I really find fascinating is that it is not shot in a later time as other "Wende" films like Good Bye Lenin, but it is really from that time (it was shot in Summer 1990) and so it catches the real wall fall feeling - the neighbors in GDR who have now all cars from the west and laugh about Udo and his Trabi; Rita's sister and her family in West Germany who make a business out of the fall of the Iron Curtain (they rent out their caravan to refugees from Eastern Europe), or Udo himself who tries to speak Russian to the people in Rome. And I also like the music, which contains lots of styles, from girlie pop over rock to techno. I give the movie nine points.
