What A Shame I can't get a copy - This really is a Laugh
I first saw this film MANY years ago ( I am now 42) As far as I can remember there was no real dialogue. Instead there were mumbles, sounds etc, but it was a film that would by the nature of its comic genius, be understood by ANY country. Anyone who liked "The Plank" or "Futtocks End" would laugh their bits off over this one.
It was a "slightly" slapstick film about a daytrip to the continent (France I believe). It contained stereotypes. The English Lobster, sits in the sun until he/she turns red. The French drinks brandy, drives his car eats onions. The German is efficient and official.
Which ever country you are from, you would probably not see the funny side of the jokes about you, but would roar with laughter at the way the others are portrayed.
This was politically incorrect, but then again, what wasn't in those days.
THIS IS A MUST SEE IF YOU GET A CHANCE ( I.E They play it on TV where you live )WATCH IT. Honest.
