Misters Dölken, Ivo and Sichel, all living peacefully in a lunatic asylum in Austria, are about to spend their summer in a special camp for those who are challenged by life. When their driver suffers a heart-attack near a little village, the three men think they have reached their destination. Instantly feeling at home in the village, they all soon meet new people. When the townsfolk hear that three lunatics have broken out, they start searching for them frantically - and as the mayor's old mother is reported missing, this search looks like the one for Frankenstein's monster. Actually, the everyday people of the village are mentally not that far away from the three sympathetic strangers, who blend in perfectly, enriching the little villages' strange normalness by their presence.Written by

In case you are German/Austrian you've got to see this movie. Its just hilarious and at the same time very touching.
I just love the scene when the town people, carrying the coffin, must cross the main street to get to the funeral...
The three main actors do a great job. The main characters never understand that they themselves are the numb nuts everyone in town including the police is searching for - even more than that: they really try to assist the search...for...for themselves ;)
Nobody knows this movie - and its a true shame! I guess it was never really promoted! But I hereby claim: Watch it!
