Started a tour in Basel and got this dvd from a colleague. I think this is the first swiss movie I watched. And it wasn’t all that good. The premise is good though. Two guys who work for the department of immigration have to check on three people if they are fit enough to become Swiss citizens. They are of course, but one of the two swissmakers (as they are called in the title) really wants to do everything possible to find something that proves they are not really willing to become Swiss.

As I said, the premise is great. Not sure why they haven’t made a remake yet in other countries, like Flanders… Maybe I should start writing…

But, it’s an old fashioned movie and the jokes are a bit lame really. The acting is just stupid as well. The ‘good’ swiss maker just smiles and that’s it. the immigrants are just re-enforcing clichés.
