A Film by Frank Beyer
A hilarious and rare classic of German cinema, CARBIDE AND SORREL is a road
trip adventure set in the last days of World War II. In a brilliant performance,
Erwin Geschonneck plays Kalle, a non-smoking cigarette factory worker who
dogged by every possible mishap must travel hundreds of miles without
a truck to get a load of carbide back to Dresden, where his chain-smoking co-workers
can use them to weld their ruined factory back together.
Directed by Frank Beyer (JACOB THE LIAR & NAKED AMONG WOLVES).
One of the best German film comedies!
