Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
In this satire, when an oil-drilling operation begins in a picaresque Bavarian village, the locals are up in arms, thinking it will ruin the panorama. Soon, they are converted to the driller's point of view when they learn that underground oil reserves could make them all rich. Even the discovery that this particular formation is good for nothing more than producing an unusual mineral water, they stay with the program. Local 1960's political figures from Bavaria are poked fun at here, and a great deal of inside knowledge is necessary in order to best enjoy this slight feature.
