I Know the Way to the HofbrÀuhaus
Germany, 1991

Bettina Hauenschild, Herbert Achternbusch, Barbara De Koy
Directed by Herbert Achternbusch


Kick, the guardian of an Osiris statue in a Munich museum, wanders about the city of Munich with a Hollywood-type mummy from the museum that has just come alive. Along the way they encounter a number of tourists whom they give useful guidance, only to finally end up in the famous Hofbräuhaus (a brewery-pub) where all the tourists go.

Dreamy movie with a lot of walking about in Munich and environs. Filmmaker Herbert Achternbusch was inspired by the titlesong "What Makes a Man to Wander" from the 1956 John Ford movie "The Searchers". The Egyptian connection in this movie is rather thin.
