One of the funniest Swiss films ever
1 April 2008 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

This is one of the funniest Swiss made films ever made. It is a wonderful and subtle parody to the general point of view how the gorgeous Swiss Confederation was founded. That it is anachronistic at some points (as criticised above) does only help to uncover the sometimes irrational relationship many Swiss have towards their history. If you have some knowledge about the origin of the story Tell, you understand why these persons are part of the movie.

I might agree that some knowledge about Swiss culture and history is useful to understand all nuances in this movie.

The scenery has not the class (and special effects) as most present films, but this gives the movie on the other hand some originality.
