Cameron Got It All Wrong
Having seen James Camerons “Avatar”, the documentary film about Hesse, I am quite disappointed with the grave mistakes of the movie:
- It’s not “na’vi” – the correct phrase would be “Un’ wie?” (or “Ei, Gude, wie?”) and this is not the name of the people, but a greeting. Its meaning is “Hello, how are you?”.
- Hesse people aren’t blue. This is a mixup. Instead there is a kind of Äppler sold under the trademark “Blauer Bock” (this name would translate into “blue buck” ). Btw. Äppler is a wine made of apples – imagine cider, only tasty.
- If someone is “blue” in Hesse (and the rest of Germany) it means he or she is drunk. This condition may also occur after a bit too much of Äppler.
