Catch That Girl

Danish director Hans Fabian Wullenweber, making his feature debut, delivers the sort of hysterically improbable stuff Hollywood churns out by the truckload. A 12-year-old girl (Julie Zangenberg) takes an interest in mountain climbing, though she's discouraged by her father, who once climbed Mount Everest but now scoffs at his past exploits. As the result of a fall many years earlier, he suffers a terrible seizure, and his daughter, hoping to send him to the States for a lifesaving experimental operation, hatches a daring plan to rob a bank with two of her pals. Not just any bank either, but the brand-new high-tech bank where her mother happens to be chief security technician. With a premise like this, one can imagine all the other fantastic coincidences necessary to connect the dots, though there's a certain giddy pleasure in watching the film try to top itself. Flamboyantly bad is always preferable to just plain bad. In Dutch with subtitles. 90 min.
