Why is there no DVD???
17 June 2002 | by (St. Gallen, Switzerland) – See all my reviews

Would you believe that this delightful little comedy is mainly a Swiss/Canadian production? Finally there is Reto Salimbeni, a Swiss director who does not make your usual Helvetic die hard drama that takes place high up in the mountains. Far from it!

Urban Safari is a witty black comedy about a business-career family in a big city. They cannot afford the holiday they think everyone else is expecting them to have - so they go on a fake vacation in their own apartment. With quite some distractions, difficulties, twists and turns I might add. The snooping neighbours being just one of their minor problems.

Sure this film isn't the big blockbuster and being a comedy it never had a chance to win any prices. But still: why is no one putting this movie on DVD??? I'm waiting for it for years!
