Made in Germany

Close your eyes, think of Germany. Words like Autobahn, Heidelberg, Volkswagen, Oktoberfest, Wirtschaftswunder, Fraulein and Angst come to mind. Also sentiments such as punctuality, order, reliability, lack of humour, world-domination.

Since starting and losing two world wars, the Germans have been viewed with a mixture of prejudice and apprehension by their neighbours, but also a sense of admiration for turning their unmitigated defeat of 1945 into the economic success story of the Twentieth Century. Made In Germany is an uncommented compilation of archive material, edited into an entertaining and revealing collage of West German society and character. Made with an international audience in mind, the film incorporates material about Germany from all over the world. It reflects the ambivalence towards our nation, but also our underrated ability to laugh at ourselves. We′re not - quite - as dull as you think. Imagine this: A film made in Germany, by Germans, about Germany. And it′s actually funny! A film with irony, sarcasm, but also love and compassion - Made In Germany.
