Storyline

Misters Dölken, Ivo and Sichel, all living peacefully in a lunatic asylum in Austria, are about to spend their summer in a special camp for those who are challenged by life. When their driver suffers a heart-attack near a little village, the three men think they have reached their destination. Instantly feeling at home in the village, they all soon meet new people. When the townsfolk hear that three lunatics have broken out, they start searching for them frantically - and as the mayor's old mother is reported missing, this search looks like the one for Frankenstein's monster. Actually, the everyday people of the village are mentally not that far away from the three sympathetic strangers, who blend in perfectly, enriching the little villages' strange normalness by their presence.

3 August 2005 | by (NRW, Germany) – See all my reviews

I didn't understand half of this movie, due to the strong dialects of most of the people. But what I got, I loved.

The whole beauty of this film is, how all of it seems to come together seamlessly. The various plot elements just flow together, nearly every gag looks as though it absolutely belongs there. Admittedly, sometimes something gets out of line and there are things that just don't fit in with the rest of the movie, but the way this one just keeps moving until it does reach its destination (or does it?) all just remind you what good writing is all about.

Of course, the story brings Howard Zieff's "The Dream Team" (1989) to mind immediately, and probably that movie was a major inspiration for this one. But the whole point here is, that the titular "Three Gentlemen" do not get stranded in a big city but in a small, isolated village, that they don't strive to recover their lost custodian but don't have any mission at all. They are just stranded and it's the narrow-minded, sometimes uncanny villagers who change their lives as much as they change theirs. And, as almost always with these pictures, we get a clear picture of who should *really* be locked away in an asylum and who not. And there are not-so-hidden statements about wonders and those who either see or ignore them.

Watch it for pure delight.
