Storyline

The Olsen gang in Jutland. Ones again Egon Olsen has a plan when he gets out of Vridslose State Prison. He has found out that the Germans left a large sum of money (in American dollars and gold bars) in one of their commando bunkers, when they were defeated in 1945; the only problem it's in Jutland. Egon, Benny and Kjeld "appropriate" a car and drives to Jutland along with Kjelds wife and child Yvonne and Borge. They look forward to fooling the the people in Jutland, but of course, things don't go quite as planed. It ends with Benny, Kjeld, Borge and Yvonne sitting in the train back to Copenhagen, were they are overtaken by Egon in his car on the road next to the track. This is the last time the Olsen gang goes to Jutland. Written by rphb

Trivia

The Jutlandic gas station assistant was played by Tage Rasmussen, a real gas station assistant from that region. Director Erik Balling did not find an actor with the North Jutlandic dialect that this character should speak. Another amateur actor in the movie is Niels Harbo, a fisherman who can be seen in the first scene with Mads Madsen (Karl Stegger). See more »

Goofs

When Egon explains the plan of the Nazi bunker to his companions, you can see that the German word "Hauptquartier" (headquarters) is misspelled as "Haubtkvartier". See more »

Little left of the silliness of the first two films... moving more towards the grandeur of the later films
8 August 2006 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

After the first two films, which mainly consisted of silly humor with little plot, this one improves the formula some, and adds more of the trademarks that all us fans know and love. Taking the Gang to Jutland was a marvelous idea, and it simultaneously exploits and reveals many of the prejudices us Zealanders have against the Judes... and utilizing the left-over Nazi bunkers on the shores of Jutland(from the occupation), complete with the intricate weapon-systems that they mastered is one among countless examples of the extensive research and excellent use of facts by Bahs and Balling. The plot is fairly well-written, if a few of the developments are perhaps too random(and using an opposing gang of criminals again seems a tad unoriginal). The pacing is quite good... the film is never really dull. The acting is great, with top-notch performances by the leads, as usual. The supporting players contain some magnificent and well-known contemporary Danish actors... Helle Virkner, Preben Kaas(in a role quite different from Dynamite-Harry) and Karl Stegger as a greedy Jude... which he portrays with great skill. Peter Steen returns to portray another uptight, overplayed semi-highly-ranked(but without any real seniority, professionalism or expertise... making fun of the Danish authorities) authority figure. The writing mostly works out, and the actions and plot is mostly credible(though a new skill of Benny's, revealed near the end, was clearly a deus ex machina; Bahs and Balling had written themselves into a corner and their workaround is neither subtle nor masterful). The humor is mostly more sophisticated than that of the previous two efforts, though there is still a trace of the silly humor(some relating to Steen's character). Much of it, however, as is the case with the later, better films, is derived from humane errors and the likes. This marks the first utterance by Egon of "I am tired to death", as well as the first appearance of the Franz Jäger safes(and this film holds what is most likely the very reason behind them being chosen; a German safe that still exists(or at least did when these were produced) and was around during the second World War), as well as the first use by Benny of the "doohickey"(as Egon later calls it, in a clever reference to the fact that it was never properly named). We are coming closer still to the excellence of the later films... reaching the height of this series, the height of Danish comedy. I recommend this film to any fan of Danish films, comedy and/or The Olsen Gang... this holds some of the truly great moments of the franchise, and shouldn't be missed by anyone interested in the characters or series. 7/10
