Storyline

Abahachi, Chief of the Apache Indians, and his blood brother Ranger maintain peace and justice in the Wild West. One day, Abahachi needs to take up a credit from the Shoshone Indians to finance his tribe's new saloon. Unfortunately Santa Maria, who sold the saloon, betrays Abahachi, takes the money and leaves. Soon, the Shoshones are on the warpath to get their money back, and Abahachi is forced to organize it quickly. Luckily, he, his twin brother Winnetouch, beautiful dancer Uschi and the Greek Dimitri each own a quarter of a treasure map that leads them to 'the shoe of Manitu'. There, Santa Maria already awaits them to take their new treasure away as well. But he did not think about the determination of Abahachi's team. Written by Julian Reischl <julianreischl@mac.com>

Trivia

When the Indian Chief - Listiger Lurch - asks for a war hatchet, one of his assistants responds - in a fake Apache dialect - that it got broken because the one they bought had a very cheap quality. The last word he utters in this fake dialect is "Tchibo". Tchibo is a chain of stores very popular in Germany, which is characterized by selling a handful of generic items at low prices. See more »

The year's funniest movie
21 January 2002 | by See all my reviews

At first I was a little bit worried about a satire of Winnetou, a very good old german movie. But when I sat in cinema, I hardly could stop laughing. Director Michael Herbig succeed totally in making a good movie. At least I have to admit that the story does not play a great part, but this really does not matter. This is why "Der Shuh des Manitu" is the film with the most visitors. Even better than Harry Potter! Go and watch this great film!
