bavarian alienation at it's best
18 May 2002 | by vstSee all my reviews

i can only agree : nothing beats this alien-bavarian connection, specially if beer (and deer) is available in bavarian measures. after the first (and only?) broadcast of this movie everybody was talking xaver-slang, mostly bavarian and since then germany knows how to react to an alien emergency and that the alien like to construct their material like bavarians would do and they like to socialize with great force and the support of some old bavarian power drink...

this is an outstanding example of sience fiction comedy and the best achievable implementation of south german folks into sci-fi
