"In the late fall of 1942, thousands of German soldiers set out to fight one of the bloodiest battles of all time.

Man spricht Deutsh by Gerhard Polt ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2002 in German and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This Teutonic satire is geared for the average West German worker who enjoys up to five weeks of annual paid vacation. Erwin Loffler and his dizzy wife Irmgard take their obnoxious young son on vacation. The bombastic Bavarian and his brood elect to spend their time on a polluted Italian beach just to be in the sun. They join fellow German tourists who insure that they have no contact with anything Italian (including people) as they fiercely guard their polluted paradise. The third word of the German title is intentionally misspelled by the filmmakers."--All Movie Guide
