Info about Luis Trenker: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luis_Trenker
The TV movie from the year 2015 is very recommended, austrian actor Herr Tobias Moretti excellent, like in most of his movies.
Btw., In the german TV, the very popular TV series called "Luis Trenker erzählt" was, and is a modern TV legend, we kids were watching
and listening to his old (war) memories every saturday afternoon, for many years.
Trenker in the 1960s was a "street sweeper," one of the most watched TV programs in those years.
Here he talked about the first world war, the so-called former "Gebirgskrieg". (One of his many classic performances as a narrator)
Luis Trenker erzählt vom Ersten Weltkrieg
* As much as I listened to Trenker's "stories" back then, and loved them very much, nowadays all these memories are unbelievable, probably mostly fabricated, and lies.
This kind of thing robs you of your own illusions, of your belief in the "good old man", the ever-straight "climber."
In truth, he was just a follower and profiteer, like my own grandfather, all cowards, an expected disappointment.
Manchmal ist es noch wichtiger, zu wissen, daß man nichts weiß.
