Gottseidank, es ist Freitag: Directed by Robert Klane. With Valerie Landsburg, Terri Nunn, Chick Vennera, Donna Summer. A Friday in the life of the disco club The Zoo, where the staff and clients meet and dance their lives away.

“This is an easy movie to laugh at. It is very into itu0026#39;s time and itu0026#39;s music, fashion, the whole nine yards. This movie came out in 1978 when disco was at itu0026#39;s most popular. DJs who a few years later would get on the u0026quot;Disco Sucksu0026quot; bandwagon were still wearing their polyester suits and wearing gold chains, playing the soundtrack of u0026quot;Saturday Night Feveru0026quot; over and over again. Itu0026#39;s easy to forget how big disco was and how serious it was for a brief span of time. This movie attempts to portray in a humourous way, a night at a very u0026quot;coolu0026quot; disco, presided over by a very u0026quot;coolu0026quot; owner and DJ, who played u0026quot; coolu0026quot; music all night long. It shows how a night at the disco affects several different kinds of people, from a couple whose marriage is on the skids to two underage girls trying to sneak in to enter a dance contest. The music is pounding, the drug use blatant, the clothes were wild, yes this was 1978. This was all a clever package, of course, to market the movieu0026#39;s fantastic soundtrack. Like the SNF soundtrack, this movie sold their double LP soundtrack like hotcakes. Live performances by Donna Summer and The Commodores add to this movies appeal. Recommended as a double feature with u0026quot;Detroit Rock Cityu0026quot; to show that there was two very divergent musical tastes amoung white kids in 1978.”
