85 min.DK/FeatureChildren's films

Sweet zaniness continues in a third instalment of the Krumborg family saga (The Crumbs and Crumb at a Gallop). This time around, Dad tries his hand, and fails, as a house-painter. Escaped convicts Ivan and Boris as usual come around with an anything but fool-proof plan for the big score. The kid Crumbs and Mom once again manage to save everybody's skin.

Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution, og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med. Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution, foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste.
