When Germany was reunified on 3 October 1990, the cast and crew of this film were filming on location in Italy, so in fact, Wolfgang Stumph, Marie Gruber and Claudia Schmutzler left their home country as citizens of the German Democratic Republic and came back as citizens of unified Germany.

We watched this in our german class and although it had the teacher running for the fast forward during the Nudist beach bit, we all really enjoyed it. I think it was one of the first times I have ever seen some of the guys in our class want to watch a movie because they like it, not just so they get out of doing some hard work. It is about a family who travels from old East Germany (?) to Rome in their little Trabi(named Georgie)following the notebook of a famous explorer. A lot of things happen to them but they eventually get to Rome. It is worth seeing and is a real feel-good movie.
