Storyline

Egon and the gang are hired to stage a robbery of an antique Chinese vase for an economically challenged baron. Naturally they fooled, which infuriates Egon. The gang tries to get back at the baron by switching the vase with a cheap Hong Kong copy. One attempt is made during the barons hunting party, where Egon ends up being bricked up in the catacombs. In another attempt, the gang has to coordinate breaking through several walls at The Royal Theater in Copenhagen with the "Elverhøj" overture. Written by Anonymous

What starts out as an okay entry in the long running Olsen-Banden series that started in 1968, emerges as one of the best, with a climactic heist in the Royal Danish Theatre with our gang blasting and drilling their way through the theatre to obtain the usual McGuffin (The Red Briefcase), set to the tunes of Kuhlau´s "Elverhøj", a cinematic moment of sheer genius, conceived and executed to perfection. That´s actor/director Asbjørn Andersen ("Reptilicus") in a cameo (his last) dressed as King Christian IV of Denmark. ***
