When adult children insist on treating their parents like naughty toddlers, four gentlemen of a certain age mount a rebellion that is comic fodder for director Bausch, foremost native chronicler of Luxembourg's humorous side through a career-long string of comedies. Nuckes, seventy-something security guard at a retirement home and purveyor of smuggled cigarettes and other forbidden goodies, joins with Fons, the resident who rigs up clandestine TV porno channels for his friends, to bust out and restart life on their own terms. Soon it's a movement of feisty fed-up seniors ripe to explore a plan to buy a house and found their own co-op colony. Luxembourg's status as an international banking center comes in for spoofing when the plan starts to run off the rails when the group goes looking for a loan. In Luxembourgish with English subtitles.
