Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
The sledge-hammer approach is evident in this comedy in which popular Danish comedians Dirch Passer, Jørgen Ryg and Preben Kaas play has-been actors plotting a bank heist that includes tunnelling through Copenhagen's main railway station. Being actors, albeit out-of-work ones, the three don a series of more-or-less comical disguises in order to fool the local gendarmerie. Non Danes might have trouble warming up to gap-toothed Passer, the country's foremost comic of his day, and it is frankly hard to believe that this cinematic whale was created by the same director who won an Academy Award ten years later for Babette's Feast (1987).
