The film highlights, in a gory manner, the dangers of unsafe operation of machinery. As the film progresses the injuries/deaths become more brutal, beginning with things like a man falling from the fork lift after he was lifted improperly, and closing with the most violent: ending in a stray chainsaw being driven around by a severed arm on the floor, reaching and ripping through a man who had already been cut in half waist-down due to Klaus’ previous accident.

German is such a brilliantly mis-represented language. How a language with words like Donaudampfschiffahrtsgesellschaftskapitän could be considered long-winded or aggressive is just beyond me.. sie ist doch so ‘ne schöne Sprache.

„Der Schwarzfahrer“ von Pepe Danquart ist ein ebenso unterhaltsamer wie nachdenklich stimmender Film zum Thema Ausländerfeindlichkeit, der mehrfach auf Festivals ausgezeichnet wurde und 1994 sogar den “Oscar” für den besten Kurzfilm erhielt. Die Geschichte spielt in einer vollbesetzten Berliner Straßenbahn, in der sich ein junger farbiger Mann neben eine ältere Dame setzt, die sich daraufhin griesgrämig über Ausländer brüskiert, ohne sich jedoch direkt an ihren dunkelhäutigen Sitznachbarn zu wenden. Jedoch meint sie mit ihren Beschimpfungen ganz offensichtlich ihn. Gleichwohl reagiert keiner der anderen Fahrgäste auf ihr indiskutables Verhalten. Nach einiger Zeit steigt ein Schaffner zur Fahrkartenkontrolle hinzu. Als die ältere Dame nun ihren Fahrschein zückt, dreht der junge Mann kurzerhand auf seine Weise den Spieß um…

7 Badass Bavarian Foods You Must Try
Bavarian food doesn’t mess around.
Bavarian food is the guy at the gym in the tiny muscle tee who’s lifting weights so heavy, the veins in his neck and head (and other parts of the body that you didn’t even know HAD veins) start to pop out.
Bavaria‘s cuisine is a monster truck. It crumples the delicate-by-comparison culinary offerings of Spain, Italy, and France like tiny little Fiats and Peugots in its path.
Do you want to eat Bavarian food? OF COURSE YOU DO. It is rich and doughy and filling and is the only thing on the planet that can soak up German beer. Every other fare will simply hide in the corner of your stomach, petrified at the sheer awesomeness of the brew that resides in there with it, and it will never get digested.
In short: if you don’t eat Bavarian food while in Germany, you could die. Here are some of my favorites. They will turn your tastebuds into receptors of SHEER ECSTASY.

In some interviews the band stated that Visconti’s 1969 movie The Damned — a depiction of the fictitious German industrial dynasty of the Essenbecks — was the main inspiration.
