I think the films nihilists were by co-incidence German, I don't think the inference was all Germans were nihilists (though that may not be true of the residence of Berlin).

Dutch mountains..... hah. Being a Dutchie I've met a few nihilist "noble Germanics".....Being that they have no beach to speak of they would regurgitate half the population over Holland in the summer......

Let me stay dude and say it's good to hear there's some laid back folks over there...... ;D
Uh, um, thinking.....I mean....working on it.

Thanks, meekon, but neither do I think the Coen Brothers wanted to imply all Germans were nihilists nor do I think it was coincidence that the four were Germans in the movie.

There are more allusions to national socialism (or taking the piss out of Germans) in the film (the best one in my opinion being "Nihilists, fuck me, say what you want about the tenets of national socialism, at least it is an ethos."
So, the Polish-Catholic-converted-to-Judaism Walter d e f e n d s national socialism (to a certain extent). I mean, how can you get more ironic, while at the same time drawing the fangs out of the monsters mouth. The Coen Brothers are fucking geniuses - well we knew that before, ok.

Or: Nihilists, nazis, ... they threatened castration, we don't split hairs here, do we?

Also, Burkhalter (the fuck at the league office), who scheduled the semis on a Shabbas, is a Kraut. How often must Walter tell him?
When Walter "puts down" papa Lebowski, he says "Achtung Baby!"
Sobchak Security reads abbreviated SS on the neon-sign above his shop.

Also, as an aside, in Barton Fink, the psychopath (although of course the question is, who is not a psycho in this movie) Mundt (another name sounding German. ), kills one of the two police detectives with the words "Heil Hitler"; the detectives, one of them has the name "Deutsch", and Lipnick, who is from Minsk originally, are clearly anti-semites, as can be taken from earlier scenes.

So to wrap it up: No coincidence, but bloody well made up (does this expression exist?).

Hi Oscar-dude, good to see you here.

when I was younger we really looked up to the Netherlands. Damn cool country, what with cannabis being legal, soldiers wearing long hair and all that? Liberal, tolerant, just dude.

You must forgive us for overcrowding your lovely beaches in summer.

I suppose it is a bit of revenge we take, for your clogging up our Autobahns and country roads with your caravans (I think that's "trailers" in American English)  ;D

I know Minsk is not in Germany, I hasten to add  ;D but unfortunately also well-known for anti-semitism.

Hi. Im from Germany, too. I live in Berlin,
It gives a German community for the Dude?s?
Im interest in the Dude?way of life, but to speak or write in English is heavy for me.
Thats why i found a few Dude?s in Germany.
