Storyline

"The Ambulance" is an intense 80 minute tour de force about the two brothers, Tim and Frank, who make a robbery to get money to pay for their dying Mother, so she can continue her medical treatment in Germany, after the Danish health care system has abandoned her. But the robbery goes wrong and the police arrive and prevent the two brothers from using their planned getaway car. Instead they steal an ambulance, but they discover - during their escape from the police - that there's a dying heart Patient and a hospital intern, Julie, in the back of the ambulance. Julie tells the two brothers that the Patient will die, if they don't turn around immediatly and go back to the hospital! This splits up the two brothers. They are now, all of a sudden, in the dilemma of their life: Should they save the Patient - or their own Mother!...Tim is forced to turn against his own big brother to prevent getting a murder on his conscience!

A 80 minutes real time ride
6 April 2014 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

This film is made on a concept that it's done after certain set of rules, just like the dogma rules was back in the nineties. The rules of the ride has been described as: The entire film must take place in only one location; an ambulance, the story has to be shot in real time and there should be only 4 persons we get to know.

If this is right, then there is a couple of minor breaches of the rules, but never mind. This is a psychological thriller about two brothers which robs a bank to be able to get their mother to alternative cancer treatment. The older is a criminal, but still doesn't want the younger to become one. Things go wrong, and on the flight from the bank they have to steal a car, which happens to be an ambulance on mission.

The idea is good, the effects are excellent, the filming is both and asa whole the film is interesting, yet I must say I wasn't really fond of any of the persons. That's a main rule when it comes to a thriller like this. The actors are good, and if we got to like the two main persons, the brothers, it would be a whole different story. The problem is that they are too unlikeable. When the film tries to establish this, it's too late. I'm also not too sure if I like the concept of going inside the body of the hear patient. I'm not sure if I get the effect of this, and that it helps the film's dramatization.

If you're able to get past this, it's an OK film to watch.
