"The Gravy Train Goes East"
Take your seat for the hilarious return journey when THE GRAVY TRAIN GOES EAST!
'Challenges the general view that the European Community is no laughing matter' The Times
Post-glasnost jewel of the Eastern European crown, the Balkan state of Slaka is a tasty treat on THE GRAVY TRAIN. Newly-liberated after years of Communist control, the little nation wants to embrace the European Community and share its bountiful fruits of capitalism and the free market.
Animosity between the East and West is now a thing of the past, so why is Slaka's entry into the E.C. so hotly-contested 'enthusiastically encouraged by the Deputy President of the EC and violently opposed by the British Government'.
The Balkan state's economic and political disarray makes E.C. entry unlikely, but perhaps only one man can perform the required economic miracle in Salaka, the naïve, bungling European dogsbody Hans Dorfmann (Christop Waltz).
Confounded and manipulated by all parties, he finds himself out in the cold and expelled from Slaka, but doggedly in pursuit of the state's missing fortune!
Filmed on location in England, Austria, Germany, Hungary and Belgium, this 2 DVD set includes all 4 parts of Malcolm Bradbury's THE GRAVY TRAIN GOES EAST starring acclaimed actor Sir Ian Richardson (House of Cards), with Christoph Waltz, Alexei Sayle (The Comic Strip Presents), Francesca Annis (Reckless), Jeremy Child, Roger Lloyd-Pack (Only Fools And Horses), Maggie Steed (Pie In The Sky) and Judy Parfitt (Yes Minister).
