Great film for outlanders
2 August 2007 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I had a wonderful time attending the Regensburg preview of Beste Zeit. I was very worried that with only 4 months of German training and a total of only 7 months living in Bavaria, that i would have a massive problem understanding a lot of the humor throughout the film. Much to my surprise i found that the story was very easy to understand to an "auslander". I'm looking very forward to reading the subtitles on this movie when i watch it the second time, and i will definitely be recommending it to my Mum and sister. However, my boyfriend, who was with me at the premier, also enjoyed it very much, but i think that was mostly because of the Bavarian humor. He is also Bavarian. The relationships between the main character, Kati, and her friends and family surrounding her, are so understandable, and easy to relate to. They really have fantastic bonds, and these are explored quite well throughout the film. Apparently this is part of a trilogy set, and if that is true, i look forward to seeing how these relationships grow and grow.

There are little to no conflicts in the film, but i didn't find this to be a problem at all, as i enjoyed the uplifting nature completely. All in all, its a wonderful, romantic painting of the Bavarian countryside and its lovable inhabitants. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to travel to these remote parts of Germany, or even if you just feel like taking a holiday in your local independent cinema. It's just great.
