Storyline

Looking around for a suitable place to hold up, Andreas stumbles into a tailor's shop. What was supposed to last only a few minutes ends up being a bizarre afternoon for three men: the tragicomic of the less-than-expert robber, the cranky tailor and a customer - a know-it-all who drives the other two crazy. The mood constantly shifts, and the tables keep turning among the threesome. A black comedy with a twist. Written by Austrian Film Commission

Wow: a good Austrian movie
30 October 2000 | by See all my reviews

From time to time, some Austrian stage-comedians produce a new film, in which they criticize some actual social problems, mostly using one of heir former stage concepts with lots of gags and a depressing ending. Those films get many visitors, more than any other home-made movie because they are really funny and entertaining. But that's all. This time, although Roland Düringer and Josef Hader, two of our best-known comedians are playing the lead roles, it's not a so-called "Cabaret-film". It's a real movie, where not just actors and script are important but also photography, editing and music - yeah, I was surprised: For the first time, they dared to use English songs! Usually, Austrian movies are high-quality or entertaining (or none of them). "Der Überfall" is both. I've been waiting for a movie like that for a long time: it makes you laugh and it makes you think and the ending is great because you have to decide yourself whether it's happy or sad. If I'd have to choose, I'd send this movie to Oscar 2001.It has a chance to be nominated.
