The Gods Must Be Crazy Film Poster


Offbeat comedy from Southern Africa about the dubious benefits of Western civilisation, which as a result of word of mouth became the biggest ever foreign box office hit in the US two years after its initial release. A Coke bottle drops out of the sky and amazes the Kalahari Bushmen who find it: they believe it to be a gift from the Gods. The bottle initially seems to the bushpeople to be a miraculous blessing, and they use it for all sorts of different purposes - but before long it becomes a source of conflict as they start to squabble over it. Eventually, one of the men, Xixo (played by real-life Bushman N!xau) sets out to return the bottle to the gods from whom he thinks it must have come, and so begins his first ever foray into 'civilisation'.
