     Wine and Beer
   The range of beer varieties is enough to make
    your head spin without drinking a drop.
   Even alkoholfreies Bier (non-alcoholic beer) has
    grown in popularity in Germany; but light beers
    have been slow to find a market.
   In Germany, Pils (Pilsner) is the most popular
    beer variety, with Export taking a distant second.
   No matter which variety, Germany’s strict purity
    law, the Reinesbot, dating back to 1516, dictates
    that German beer may contain no ingredients
    other than hops, malt (barley), yeast, and water.

  paid for by the employer, employee, and
  taxes.
• In Germany, the average employee salary
  contribution is about 13 percent.
Films
  Europeans, including the Germans, have
   traditionally tended to regard filmmaking as an
   art rather than a business.
  Because the resulting European films are
   often limited-budget, intellectually challenging
   productions that lack the Hollywood big-star,
   action/blockbuster formula, their mass appeal
   has been limited.

  Hollywood: In 2001, she played opposite
  Johnny Depp in her first U.S. movie,
  Blow, and since then has played in other
  major American productions.

  recognised her straight away because I
