.. Switzerland has never had such a big movie-budget as at the moment, and still can't make any really good movies? ah yes right, they just don't know how (yet)! for every conscript from Switzerland who has done his military service or every girl who has had a boyfriend who did it (or done it herself), this movie is OK! (hence the 5 point vote).. some bits are funny, because they really took every cliché and overdrew them (the pacifist from the french speaking part of Switzerland for example). the different dialects of Switzerland also have a big part in this set up, and this of course works great in swiss-German.
but as a movie for anybody else? .. no way! i would be astonished if anybody from outside Switzerland (non-swiss) could really have a good laugh..
so much for the story.
acting: oh well.. i've seen worse, but no Oscar-worthy performances. imagery/technical: they are getting there. it's OK, but some better filters would made it visually more appealing.
