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.

Pretty example of austrian-bavarian humour...
26 February 2001 | by (Munich, Germany) – See all my reviews

Three idiots escape from an excursion into the 'summer holidays' and experience hair-raising adventures. The mood of this amazing movie is changing from the calmness of a typical summer day to strong humour. But it is just funny when Fischer observes everything with his magnifying glass. Although sometimes too strong it is a nice and silent movie. Unfortunately this film reveals in it's full beauty if one is able to understand the austrian or bavarian dialect but if you do and love austrian-bavarian way of life you will not be disappointed!
