Storyline

The obstacles facing the perilous mission of 12-year-olds Ida, Sebastian and Jonas are many: a bank vault 30 meters above ground to open, secret combinations to crack, vicious guard dogs to wrestle, watchmen to distract and a bank manager to fool. Not to mention surviving a hair-raising go-cart race through narrow city streets with a hoard of cops in hot pursuit. Equipped with state-of-the-art climbing gear, a few borrowed go-carts and a couple of wild, throbbing hearts set on winning Ida's love, the trio plan the most audacious bank heist in the history of Denmark: to steal 1.5 million DKK from CCT Bank Europe's new headquarters - by breaking into the world's most secure bank vault.

Mission Possible!
24 February 2002 | by noxomSee all my reviews

I just saw this movie at the Berlin Film Festival's Children's Program and it just killed me (and pretty much everyone else in the audience)! And make no mistake about it, this film belongs into the all-time-250! Let me tell you that I'm in no way associated with the creators of this film if that's what you come to believe reading this. No, but this actually is IT! Nevermind the "kid's-film" label on it, "Klatretösen" ("Climber Girl") is on almost every account a classic (as in "biblical")! The story concerns 12-year old Ida (magnetic: Julie Zangenberg), who is devastated to learn of her daddy's terminal illness. Special surgery in the US would cost 1.5 million and of course, nobody could afford that. So Ida and her friends Jonas and Sebastian do what every good kid would - and burglarize a bank! Sounds corny? Don't forget: This is not America and "Klatretösen" is by no means the tear-jerking Robin-Williams-multiplex-plat-du-jour nobody takes seriously anyway. Director Fabian Wullenweber set out to make a big-budget-action-comedy for kids and, boy, did he succeed! Let me put it this way: This film rocks like no kid-film and few others did before. And there's a whole lot more to it than just the "action". After about 20 minutes of by-the-numbers-exposition (well, granted) it accelerates into a monster that:

  • effortlessly puts "mission impossible" to shame (the numerous action sequences are masterfully staged and look real expensive - take that, mummy!)


  • dwarves almost every other movie suspense-wise ( no easy-they're-only-kids-antics here )


  • easily laces a dense story with enough laughs to make jim carrey look for career alternatives


  • nods to both damon runyon and karate kid within the same seconds


  • comes up with so much wicked humor that side of p.c. that I can hear the American ratings board wet their pants from over here


  • manages to actually be tender and serious and sexy at the same time (ohmygod, what am I saying?? they're kids! they're kids! - nevermind, watch that last scene!)


  • stars Stafan Pagels Anderson, who since last years "Mirakel" is everybody's favourite kid actor


What a ride!
