was watching 'eldorado kadewe' the other night - set in 20s berlin. BUT when they are outside the actors are surrounded by the present day cars, signs, clothes etc - no attempt at period evocation and no cgi it's weird... director says they didn't have the budget and they didn't want the same few old cars going round the block plus it's art darling! well it doesn't work for me Rolling Eyes

finster, do you know what "kadewe" means? Would sound like "kah deh veh".




These are the German pronunciation of the letters K D W; stands for Kaufhaus des Westens = department store of the west.

A friend lived in West Berlin who I visited several times in the early '80's when I worked in Wolfsburg, and we went there on one visit. Remarkable store- huge by then German standards.

yes I do thanks. visited the store in spring 1990 and had lunch there - it was very different from the 1920s depicted (no shooting or sex in the changing rooms!). the bbc announcer pronounced it as ka-dee-vee Rolling Eyes

From 2008:

Just rewatched "The World's Fastest Indian" with Anthony Hopkins. In it, Burt Munro is driven to the used car lot by Tina in a red and white sunroof beetle, circa 1960.

Great movie for gearheads.

Fact-based movie about New Zealander Burt Munro (Anthony Hopkins) who modifies a 1920 Indian brand motorcycle in his small home workshop for top speed record attempts at Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah, USA in 1967. The red Beetle sunroof is a '58/'59 based on the steering wheel, although IMCDB lists it as a '60. Tina, the driver, who is the transvestite clerk at the local hotel in which Munro stays, is played by Chris Williams.

There's a light blue Beetle in background on the salt flats, might be a big-bumper '68+.

This segment had nothing to do with VWs, but the differences between working class and college graduates.
