Hotel Very Welcome / Guests Of Honor
Hotel Very Welcome
Germany 89 min.FictionEnglish, German, Thai, Hindi2007

Five protagonists travel with their backpacks through India and Thailand searching for freedom and adventure. Their journeys draw a detailed picture of a generation of individualist Western tourists who hope to achieve redemption from themselves in Asia. The road to real spirituality is rocky and so they all wander aimlessly through the huge amusement park called Asia. The director, Sonja Heiss, travelled through Asia for several months with her protagonists. The result is a hilarious film, which blurs the line between reality and fiction and takes the audience on an exceptional trip.
