On a Friday evening two men played by the comical duo 'Badesalz' get stuck in an elevator of a skyscraper. As there is no hope of being rescued during the weekend they try to divert themselves by letting go their fantasies on a journey. They appear as their famous couples Rita and Helga - the cashiers at the supermarket, Richie and Headbanger - the rockers, as typical Bavarians, as Eskimos and others.Written by
A must for everybody who lived in Germany and is able to understand the strong dialect. Translated into English it would come pretty close to "Little Britain" or "Royston Vasey". "Badesalz" are known for their absurd dialogues. The story builds around two people caught in an broken elevator late Friday afternoon. An absurd firework of gags pinpointing the common prejudice, bad behaviour and funny ? attitudes deploys. The characters featured in the many little episodes forming the big film will be well known to Badesalz-lovers, but they are nevertheless highly enjoyable.
Only suitable for those who like the Monthy Pythons and Little Britain.
