Movie Reviews

Disappointed - not much here about the real Germany
Robert Carroll | Las Vegas | 04/30/2006
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I spent 10 years in Germany. Even though I worked for the American government, most of my friends and work colleagues were German and I lived far away from any American community. I traveled widely all around Germany and other parts of Europe and I spoke passable German.

This "documentary" was not very representative of any part of my life experience or travels in Germany. It wasn't even at tourist level relevance. Did any Germans have a chance to critique this before they made it? I doubt it.

Pass on this one. It makes me kind of suspicious of the whole Globe Trekker series that they would put this poor representation out there."
Not for everyone

"This dvd is for people who want to see what a German nudist beach is like, drinking at the Octoberfest and where to find your backpack should you drink too much and loose it. We looked at a mud field where Hitler's house once was and found out about recycling in the country and ended up watching some rock climbing. Not what I had in mind exactly."
Boring Germany and not the Real Germany
Westermann | South Florida USA | 07/27/2009
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I want to ask a question to GLOBE TREKKER producers: Did Justing influence the videos? To much about Hittler and Jews, and also some silly things like Frankstein. I know Justing is a Jewish from South Africa, but she must do a TRAVEL vidoe showing the GEOGRAPHY and real CULTURE of the region. Talk about history all the time make it boring! Okoterfest is a bad representation of Germany (a BIASED VIEW OF GERMANY). Justine does de same thing as Ian did in Brazil. A boring, BIASED and weak view on Germany. Ian made Brazil looks BORING and show a very BIASED view of Brazil. Justine and Ian should take a GEOGRAPHY COURSE (CULTURAL AND PHYSICAL), before they do another GLOBE TREKKER film."
Good information/ but with bad tast

"Ok first of all, if you going to have the host do a nude segment on a nude beech, then at least have a woman with out all the whale blubber down below. "Of all the girls they could have picked"

Of course Justine did a great service on the film directing the audience attention exploring what Germany has to offer such as trains rides, street tours, and the beer festival. She even whooped a guy with a loaf of bread when being pinched on the arse.

I might add a bit more latter. Right now I can't think of anything interesting to say regarding an ungreatfull socialist country "yeah I know we too are going that route" that was built up by American money and kept from starving though American Airpower. I hope some of that wasn't lost in the German text book.
