Film: Andermatt - Global Village

An Egyptian businessman is investing a fare amount of money in the hard of Switzerland, the village Andermatt. The inhabitants hope for the best with all the new investments. Stubborn farmers are getting charmingly disembarked until the diggers arrive and one luxury resort after the other is built. This is the story of Andermatt, a small village in the mountains, which during time of crises receives through millions of Francs a helping hand. But are “hope” and “homeland” tradable goods? Could a story like this also happen in Zermatt?
