Hi, I’m Michael, English guy in the Zurich area. I’ve been here 12 years.
I love Hitchcock, classic drama and realist stories, smart sci-fi, murder mysteries, and the odd kitschy musical.
But until 2021, I’d hardly watched a single Swiss film…
What do a country’s films tell us about its culture?
The main aim of Swiss Me Deadly is to give non-Swiss a list of classic movies from this country, chosen for their Helvetic focus.
As well as a quick plot summary and review, each film undergoes a complex analysis known as the Movie’s Underlying Evidence of Swissness: Lab Investigation (MUESLI™).
We hypothesize that careful use of MUESLI™ can tell us a lot about Swiss culture – and may even make us more Swiss.
