If you liked the other 46 Tora-san movies, you'll like this one too
Contains Spoiler Tora-san befriends a suicidal salary man who is so greatful that he insists that Tora-san accompany him on a trip to Vienna. Torajiro has never even been on an airplane but reluctantly goes. Torajiro is miserable while his companion drags him through museums and famous sites. While there he falls for a pretty young Japanese tour guide, but like all his other romances, this one fizzles out. Upon returning to his home, he utters his trademark "it was just a dream".
If you enjoy the Tora-san formula, this one won't dissapoint you. If you have never seen one of these movies, you might catch this one subtitled in English on a flight to Japan. It is worth watching but the translation skims over alot of things. Basically Tora-san is a wanderer, a hopeless romantic, a looser. The series is about his journies around Japan and his many failures at romance. Somehow this really appeals to a certain generation of Japanese.
