Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
Copying ideas from The Gods Must Be Crazy or Ivory-Merchant Productions' Savages, the independent, low-budget comedy Luggage Of The Gods is about a neolithic tribe living somewhere in North America and the discoveries some tribe members make when suitcases accidentally fall out of the cargo hold of a jet. As two tribal members (one just ostracized because he looked up at a passing plane) go through the various devices of modern life found in the suitcases, a new world opens up -- a least a crack. While the acting is expressive and the fake monosyllabic language passable, this film needs more than suitcases to successfully entertain for its full 78 minutes.
