Storyline

"The Ambulance" is an intense 80 minute tour de force about the two brothers, Tim and Frank, who make a robbery to get money to pay for their dying Mother, so she can continue her medical treatment in Germany, after the Danish health care system has abandoned her. But the robbery goes wrong and the police arrive and prevent the two brothers from using their planned getaway car. Instead they steal an ambulance, but they discover - during their escape from the police - that there's a dying heart Patient and a hospital intern, Julie, in the back of the ambulance. Julie tells the two brothers that the Patient will die, if they don't turn around immediatly and go back to the hospital! This splits up the two brothers. They are now, all of a sudden, in the dilemma of their life: Should they save the Patient - or their own Mother!...Tim is forced to turn against his own big brother to prevent getting a murder on his conscience!

User Reviews

 
Another danish film below average. 2 men trying to rob a bank to give their dying mother a lung-transplantation with the money.
10 July 2005 | by andersgrothSee all my reviews

Thomas Bo Larsen displays yet another character as an imbecile criminal from Copenhagen. The movie doesn't bring anything new to the Danish movies and he's seen in this role dozens of times before. The action scenes are not many and not so entertaining at all. It simply needs action to have at least something worth seeing.

The best scene of the film is the opening scene from whereon everything goes wrong.

It's hard to see what the movie wants to contribute with. After I saw it I felt a bit of having wasted my own time on it. The twists the movie tries to give are way to easy to predict.

The whole plot of the movie is way better on paper that on film.
