A Berlin entrepreneur and his family regularly come to Tyrol for holidays. Although the locals dislike the haughty attitude of the Germans, they persuade him that building a snow-cannon factory in their village would be beneficial to all sides. The series reflects in a satirical way on Tyrol's growing dependency on tourism, and on Tyrolean's loss of their identity resulting from this.Written by
this 4-parter plays in austria's own zillertal, but can be applied to every tourist ghetto in the world. besides all the fun you have with the piefke-saga - there is a serious core in it, and it's played in a perfectly satirical manner.
this is an incredible saga about a german family that visits an austrian tourist center for decades and finally settles there. it shows perfectly what tourist want, how they get it - on the surface - and how much the 'natives' hate, betray and clip them behind their backs. some of the best actors and actresses from austria and germany bring their actions to a pulsing life.
all this should of course not keep you from a visit to this beautiful country ... unless you are a ... piefke ;-)
P.S.: i don't know if it is available in english. bet it would lose much when they don't talk in their original dialects!
