"Go Trabi Go" is a movie that consists of two elements: It is the story of a travel, but also a comedy. The Italian landscapes and sights are shown in beautiful pictures when the trip of the Struuz' passes camping sites, nudist beaches (a new experience for the people from GDR), lakes and finally Rome. Their guidebook is a diary from Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (Mr. Struuz is German teacher), their car a Trabant. This typical Ossi-car is one of the funny elements. The owner of the car is the father, he loves his car (which he calls "Schorsch") and this leads to many funny moments. The main comical sources are the archetypes. All the wessi's clishés towards the ossis and vice versa are put together and packed into figures, situational humor and funny dialogues. The film has many highlights, when the society of German revue artists and comedians appear in the film (e.g. Diether Krebs telling the shocked Udo Struuz 109 jokes about Trabants). I enjoyed viewing the film and I think not only people with knowledge about the wessis and the ossis will do so, too. All in all a wonderful story about a family getting away from the ex-GDR to see how the world out there really is...
