Die Herbstzeitlosen – **

Posted: July 18, 2011 in Comedy, Switserland, XX

Seen on dvd

The other of the two Swiss dvd’s I lent from a Swiss colleague. And a better one. Actually, not sure why this has not been remade yet in Hollywood. The idea is simple, but it can work.

An old recently widowed woman, living in a remote village of the Swiss alps, decides to pursue her childhood dream: opening up a lingerie shop with hand-made lingerie. The woman is in her eighties and the village she lives in is very conservative.

THere you go. That is how simple a movie can be. Think of the British comedy dramas like The Full Monty and you get the idea. A laugh, a cry and some moments where you think it is made by amateurs. But a feel good weekend movie. In a dialect only Swiss people can understand. Thanks for subtitles!
