Storyline

This is the funny German version of the social comedy Ocean`s Eleven. Eleven accomplices from the eastern part of Germany ("Ossi" is slang for an East German citizen) get together to plan a new and huge criminal act, although the head of them, Oswald Richter (Tim Wilde), just got out of prison. But they have a problem. The casinos they desired to break in to already went bankcruptcy, thus a new plan has to be made. Their next idea is to steal money from an iron foundry, who still owns bills of the former currency, German Marks. Later, this should be exchanged into EURO at a federal bank. But the theory sounds far easier than reality is in the end. The crew, which consists of a former top-notch world class canoeist, Bruno, a fast food store owner, Axel, and a kid that thinks he is Elvis, Timmy, is lucky to find out that one of them has a grandfather who knows about the old tunnel system under the iron foundry. The problematic journey begins and holds unexpected obstacles.

Frankie goes to Saxony

Karoline Eichhorn, she can play anything. Even an armored car driver in the middle of nowhere, on the brink of being laid off, looking good. She is the last addition to an ex-convict's team of misfits lined up for a major breaking-and-entering operation. That about sums up the plot. George Clayton Johnson's short story "Ocean's Eleven", first published in 1960, has spawned half a dozen movies to date, ranging from the Rat Pack classic to Steven Soderbergh's third installment of his remake, "Ocean's Thirteen". Writer-director Oliver Mielke's script takes the original plot idea of a gang of resourceful oddballs pulling off a big-time casino heist and replays it against the gloomy backdrop of an Eastern German scrap metal plant. Unfortunately, it's not half quirky as it sounds. The movie has its charms though. The cool soundtrack pays tribute to the story's 1960s origins. Touching performances by Michael Brandner in the part of a suicidal hot dog vendor, and by Manfred Möck as a glum, yet surprisingly sneaky ex-intelligence operative. Solid, if somewhat shallow TV fare. Brandner's character might have been developed as the lead in a more substantial story along the lines of "Schultze Gets the Blues".
