| Dreams come true!!!
Three lusty, old women have saved a lot of money. It´s their last big dream to make a journey around the world on an ocean steamer. They go to a bank and want pay in their money - but just in that moment the bank is robbed out. Their money is gone! So what? They decide to rob out the bank by themselves. It´s now or never...

I think it´s a miracle that this film was realized. A story about three old ladies robbing out a bank? Nobody had the hope that it would be successful. The only one who believed in the script was Til Schweiger and so he decided to produce it with his firm "Mr.Brown-entertainment" (a figure in Tarantinos "Reservoir dogs"...). Director Lars Büchel didn´t make the mistake to create the characters just as joke figures. That would have been to easy. You don´t laugh ABOUT the three, you laugh WITH them, and that´s what takes them so believable and touching. A bittersweet movie about getting older.
