OT: Achtung, fertig, Charlie!

Mike Eschmann // Switzerland, Germany, 2003
Fiction Feature // FF2004



The first ever Swiss teen military comedy! Snatched from the wedding altar by military police to do his military service, Antonio (European Shooting Star Michael Koch) is prepared to go to any lengths to get himself thrown out of the army and back into the arms of his sweetheart, Laura. He’ll even seduce fellow recruit Michelle, because there is a strict ban on sex in the barracks… A huge box-office hit in Switzerland.
