Das sprichwörtliche Glück - Proverbial Luck
Two quaint neighbours flit and flirt in a world of idioms.
Idioms garnish our language, but are often hard to translate. This comedy helps to illustrate German historical idioms and tells the story of two neighbours, who become enamoured. The "foam-beater" (boaster) Hanspeter throws an eye after an addleheaded Annemarie, but she just "shows him the bird" (indicates that he is chuckoo). So he has to "jump over his shadow" (take the plunge) and get a foot in her door. Amusement for all proverb fans who love to make whoopee, gaze into the pale blue yonder, or get to the point.
