  • Description

    The Isar river in Germany. Two men stand on a raft like boat pulling large oars. L/S of large number of people standing on the raft as it is rowed downstream.

    "The swift current provides the power and merry crowds take the trip as a novelty." High angle shot from a bridge of the raft passing underneath. C/U of large steins being filled with beer from a barrel. M/S of large group of Germans having a good time. Musicians play a cello, violin and accordion. Man in lederhosen drinks beer in the foreground. M/S of a rock passed by the raft. Shot of the raft from the shore. C/U of man playing the accordion.

    "The "floor" hardly attains Dance Palace standard - but it suffices - !" M/S of couples dancing. More shots of the boat. A shot from on board which shows how fast and rough the current is. People hang on to the boat as it negotiates rough waters. C/U of man in a traditional hat playing a trumpet. Another shot of the boat in rough waters.
