A calm and emotional insight about German people trying to face new aspects of life being on vacation. In purpose to leave their habits and customs behind for a while by traveling, they all find themselves stuck in cultural manners and the conflict between romanticized ideals and their real lives.
I don't know if you have to be German to get touched by this silent movie and it's pure and natural acting. But in any case you will get a good guess of the subtle German humor and a thorough picture of German behaviour and relations. It's often not the word that counts, as there are many ways of expression. And so this film remains a small masterpiece.
