Tyrolia - where even the lynch mobs yodel
23 June 2005 | by (Vienna, Austria) – See all my reviews

This is a musical film which parodies the "Heimatfilm" genre hilariously: Everyone talks in a stilted, highly "artificial" style and starts to sing at a moment's notice. The songs cover different styles, from Austrian folk music to sort - of - rock and are just overdone enough to be funny, but still believably close to the originals. The actors really get into their roles and seem to have fun (the only exception being the forgettable lawyers). Ludger Pistor gives a memorable performance as a priest / drug dealer who talks to Jesus, Don Camillo style. The poacher and the mayor are complete opposites, and both are played to the extremes by their respective actors. My only problem with this film were the many jokes about bodily functions scattered throughout it, such as the mayor being tricked into drinking a beer mug full of urine. Still, most of the humour comes from taking clichés to their hilarious extremes. This film is recommendable for everyone who is either sick of the "Heimatfilm" or who likes films of that sort and can take a bit of good - natured parody.
