Trivia

The call sign of Dr. Mabuse's henchmen in the van is CRM 114, which is also the name of the infamous fictional device used in Stanley Kubrick's Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964). See more »

Goofs

When Wurster's Assistant brakes for the crossing Gekeler, Wurster reacts much too late. Together with the not-so-elegant back projection this is an obvious hint at the fact that the car is stationary and Peter van Eyck reacts badly to a cue. See more »

Funny swabian 'remix' of a classic
14 April 2019 | by bjoernidlerSee all my reviews

This film is basically a remix of a 1960s classic from director Fritz Lang, one of many movies revolving around the mysterious criminal mastermind Dr. Mabuse. The original is a pretty straightforward thriller with some undertones of mystery.

But this remix is something different. It is the classic film with new synchronisation by swabian comedian Dodokay who became locally famous because of his youtube-versions of stuff like '24' or Star Wars in which he put new texts in the swabian dialect under the original pictures. This is his first full-length synchronisation of a complete movie.

Being swabian myself, I was laughing my butt off because of the inside jokes you only understand if you know the dialect and if you've got some knowledge about swabian clichee. I can't really say what the experience would be for an audience from other parts of Germany or even other countries.

You've got to hand it to Dodokay that je really put some effort into this movie. This isn't cheaply done. Great care is put into all aspects of the film:

  • Dodokay lends his voice to all the characters in the movie and makes them recognizable.
  • New music was composed for this.
  • It doesn't tell exactly the same story as the original. Many scenes are cut or put together differently so that it suits Dodokays new story.
  • Subtle vfx are used to give the movie a more local feel. The number plates of the cars for example have been digitally replaced so that they match the area in which the story takes place. This is only one of many examples.


So, all in all, this movie isn't for everyone. It helps if you're Swabian or have at least a certain interest in the dialect. If you also like classic movies, this one is perfect for you. You'll probably laugh a lot. If not, save your money or buy yourself a swabian dictionary.
