The Swissmakers

  • Film

Time Out says

Lyssy’s essentially fond, humane parody of cuckoo-clock Switzerland, in which an amiable young bureaucrat has to snoop on immigrants to see if they are ‘suitable’ for Swiss citizenship. British political parallels immediately spring to mind, but the humour here is more slapstick than documentary, so Love and Liberalism carry the day with little difficulty. Not exactly sophisticated (and the camerawork leaves something to be desired), but infinitely preferable to the forced, jangling misanthropy of the Italian Bread and Chocolate in dealing with the same subject.
