Out of Rosenheim. Percy Adlon. 1987. ★★★★★☆
This is such a lovely movie. I loved it when I saw it 20 years ago, and I loved it even more this time.
Percy Adlon is a pretty unique director. I tried shopping for his early movies earlier this year, and they’re all basically just available in Germany. In German. This DVD had one subtitle (in German) and two audio tracks: in German and in … wait for it… “Bavarisch-amerikanisch”. The latter was mostly in English, so it was no problem.
I do know some German, but following a movie in German is beyond me. I watched Zuckerbaby (fantastic) in February, and I had a German-speaking friend do the translations. But why on Earth wouldn’t you just slap English subtitles on all DVDs you release? I mean, there’s a world out there, Germany! Geez!!!
