Three elderly ladies, Carla, Lilli and Meta, who, after their hard earned holiday money is stolen by bank robbers, decide to steal from their local bank. Along the way their are romances, arguments and a few other unexpected surprises.
Three elderly ladies, Carla, Lilli and Meta, chat about their aches and pains and their fear of death's approach. Harmless stuff, at first glance. But the autumn of their lives is hardly a bed of roses. Carla can't pay the rent for her retirement home, Lilli is constantly harassed by her daughter, and Meta's neurotic son is getting on her nerves. A wee dram is just the thing for putting the cares of the world behind you, and so, over the odd glass of liqueur, they dream of a luxury cruise financed by their card games. Just their luck to be mugged as they bring the takings to the bank. A shattered dream? No way, say the three graces - anything those young men can do, we can do better. They work out a perfect plan, persuade Meta's short-sighted neighbour to join them, and return to the bank with a blunderbuss. Written by
I just watched the premiere here in Hamburg and I've gotta say: JETZT ODER NIE is film making at it's BEST! In many scenes you just don't know if you should be laughing or crying... or both at the same time?
Director Lars Büchel is genius! JETZT ODER NIE is Oscar-worthy touching entertainment, the soundtrack is stunning and the entire movie is very beautiful photographed. Of course, congratulations to the actresses and actors too!
JETZT ODER NIE is one the the BEST German movies ever and even Hollywood could learn from it. A MUST-SEE for E-V-E-R-Y-B-O-D-Y!!
Herzlichen Glückwunsch an Lars und sein Team, für einen erstklassigen Job!
