Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The South African After You, Comrade was directed by Jamie Uys, of The Gods Must be Crazy fame. Uys himself stars as a Russian delegate to a worldwide peace conference. Unable to settle their differences through the usual diplomatic avenues, Uys and American delegate Bob Courtney agree to resolve their conflict in a winner-take-all walking race. The two contestants start out in Athens, and end up in Paris, with several chucklesome side trips along the way. After You, Comrade ends up as the usual Jamie Uys blend of satire, slapstick and social commentary.
