MOVIE NIGHT AT THE LINDENHOF

Der Schuh Des Manitu


You are welcome to come in to the Lindenhof at 6:30, have a drink and socialize before the showing of the Movie,
Der Schuh Des Manitu.
Popcorn will be available. Movie and popcorn are free.
This is a different offering as we usually have a German movie with English subtitles. This time there are no English subtitles.
You will get the story line from the context and the action. I am told the story is quite obvious. For the so-so German speaker, you will catch many words and perhaps learn a few words while enjoying the gist of the story. For the real German speaker you will enjoy hearing German spoken and will enjoy the action of the movie.
This is a real “wild west” comical movie. Abahachi, chief of the Apache, and his blood brother Ranger are an inseparable pare since Ranger saved Abahachi from a speeding train on an unguarded railroad crossing.
The plot involves looking for a treasure, finding it, losing it and regaining it. Hostilities were ended, the villain gets his “just reward” and Ranger rides off into the sunset with his pregnant sweatheart. What more could anyone ask of an entertaining movie?
