If this film is to be believed, then yodeling isn’t just for the silver-haired set anymore. The documentary follows young philosophy student Polkabjorn (we’re betting that’s not his real name) and his musical accomplice “Kleine Heine” as they take their yodel-riffic act around the world, playing venues ranging from bars to stadiums. And while they may approach yodeling with a touch of hipster-friendly irony, the lads seem genuinely motivated in their pursuit to meet yodeling legend Franzl Lang. Oh, and did we mention their manager is a male stripper?
