directed by Michael Hoffman
United Kingdom 1985


Two young Scot lads, who really hasn’t neither much going for them nor much brains, come up with a brilliant plan to get some money. They dress up and rob tourist busses in the Highlands. But their plan quickly takes a drastic turn, as, while the police is hunting them, they themselves have become the biggest tourist attractive since the Loch Ness monster.

A small gem of a film, full of heart, who doesn’t seem to have aged one bit the last twenty years.

Comments Next to a flawless image, and considering this to be a DVD-5 (3.5 GB), only makes it more impressive.

The only thing I can put my finger on is the subtitles, which only is active during non-English language (the Japanese commercial for instance). A shame for those with hard-of-hearing.
