This comedy about lovers and robbers is a darkly humorous take on immigrants living Austria. The film opens with Paolo (Christopher Buchholz), a failed junkyard attendant who schemes to open an Italian restaurant. Enter a pair of brazen if stupid bank robbers, Melles (Gerhard Liebmann and Knarek (Lars Rudolph), who try and fail to stick up everything. Along for the ride is Knarek's girlfriend Julie (Piroska Szekely), until the duo tire of her and dump her by the side of the road. She finds her way to Paolo's restaurant. Soon he falls of the lass, but all she wants is to dig from his basement to that of the bank next door. This film was screened at the 2000 Rotterdam Film Festival.
