Storyline

The opportunity to make some fast money by delivering a hot car moves Ana and Nicolae, a young couple from Romania, to take a bus from Bucharest to Vienna. After arriving they are told to be patient, their car is not ready yet. Ana wants to return, while Nicolae would rather forge on westward. Without any money, they are stuck in Vienna, and after a fight they split up which leads to encounters with various locals: Nicolae meets Dana, a 30-year-old travel agent who is full of life. Ana gets acquainted with Jan, a department store detective still suffering from the break-up with Rita, his ex-girlfriend across the hall. Martha, Jan's equally apathetic roommate, keeps her head above water as a human crash test dummy. Later, when Ana and Nicolae meet up again, their relationship is bathed in a new light.

nice serious comedy with surreal humor
9 November 2005 | by (Sevilla, Spain) – See all my reviews

Crash Test Dummies has been screened in Seville's European Film Festival (Spain) in November 2005 and was quite liked by the public.

This movie tells the story of a young couple of Romania that travel to Wien (Austria) to get some money out of an illegal deal and how they get mixed with a gold-hearted young security guard and his depressive roommate (oddly the funniest character).

If you see this movie you'll get a balance between humor and seriousness, not being plain silly at all nor overwhelmingly realistic portraying immigrant's problems in a foreign country. It's nice entertainment based in getting smiles and laughs about situations that might have been treated in a much tougher way. You'll find several surreal scenes or moments that really deserve watching.

To put it in a nutshell, worth watching European serious comedy.
