Storyline

The Struutz family return from holidays after the fall of the Berlin Wall to find their home being bulldozed to make way for a golf course. It gets worse when Udo inherits a nearly-bankrupt garden gnome factory and the corrupt mayor starts chasing Udo's wife. Salvation is sought through the dubious influence of the charismatic Charlie, whose half-baked philosophies ("Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose") are based on tired old Western rock songs and a minimal grasp of Zen. Written by David Kinne <davros@gargoyle.apana.org.au>

Bland Sequel
7 February 2014 | by MozjoukineSee all my reviews

GO TRABI GO - das war zer wilde Osten is the follow up to the popular German GO TRABI GO.

The East German family comes back to find their country re-unified, their flat flattened and themselves heir to a garden gnome factory.

We get dad's US trip, flavoured condoms, skinheads and the daughter and her better shaped friend in skating outfits showing up in a Pigalle bar, while mum is romanced by a crooked official.

This routine sequel is a part of European pop culture which didn't mean all that much outside its country of origin first time and is all but forgotten now.
