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.Written by
Yes, I am sentimental, and yes, I love movies where kids are the better humans. True, Klatretøsen does have some logical or even plot shortcomings. These are more than compensated by the kids' great acting (Julias first movie role at all!) and the charm of a Dogma film (I liked this kind of cinematografic art long before the Dogma; ever since Herzog's 'Herz aus Glas'). Well, I cried through the last fifteen minutes which is a higher tear factor than bambi or Fly away home had for me.
