The funniest Swiss movie I remember seeing!
9 October 1999 | by SwissChrisSee all my reviews

Beresina is definitely funnier than that classic of Swiss comedy, Die Schweizermacher. The exaggerated way in which everything is portrayed is hilarious and never dumb. I don't know if it's equally funny for people who have never been to Switzerland though - you mightn't get some of the jokes. But everybody else: Go and see it, you'll have a laugh.
