N° 1 in my list of the most boring films of all times.
While altogether an important German document from the past, this film can show you a great many scenes you will not be able to reproduce like that today. If you can sit through the film, that is.I barely managed to hang on.
Imagine some Germans, having seen windjammer, thinking we can do this too. Imagine stilted dialogs which would today probably count as made-for-TV quality, obviously overdubbed by Germans speaking English in a studio; Imagine the spirit of the German postwar generation,and what they would like to see, which means,in a nutshell : you get parades, marching bands, and vacation destinations not too far away from Germany. Contrary to the beautiful Windjammer everything in this film has a scripted, boring obviousness to it, and most attempts at humor never get out of the proverbial German fug. You are better of with trying to see a copy of Windjammer, which is a far superior film.
