That's Switzerland
8 August 2001 | by (Vienna, Austria) – See all my reviews

One of my favourite playwrights is Friedrich Dürrenmatt who came from Switzerland and wrote plays of some let's say political-philosophical significance. He used to turn the world (especially the Swiss one) around and examine it from a rather twisted point of view, but usually he hit the nail on the head. This movie transfers in a hilarious way the Swiss mentality as Dürrenmatt would have presented it. Daniel Schmid gives a wonderful satirical portrait of his country although there aren't almost any Swiss actors speaking the „Schwytzerdytsch` other German speaking citizens usually spoof about Switzerland, and although the two leading characters are not Swiss but Russian and from another country (I couldn't filter out which). Weird jokes, surprisingly good actors and a satirical plot that gets better and better in course of the movie make „Beresina` a sadistic pleasure for every viewer. Of course, the ending and the message of the movie are somewhat exaggerated, but that's what satires are supposed to be. And people who know Switzerland will admit that in the main most things are not too far-fetched. I would be happy, if anybody would produce such a fine movie about my country.
