Synopsis

There's a real skill in making a film in which terrible things happen and yet the audience is left helpless with hilarious laughter - it's a mixture that's seriously hard to get right. But in all movie history, it's rarely been done better than in this British comedy about a sweet old lady who thinks that her new lodger is the leader of a group of classical musicians, rather than the head of gang of hardened (although incompetent) criminals planning a big heist.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
