Four kids – Eugen, Wrigley, Bäschteli and Eduard – leave for an adventure around Switzerland, searching for the fabulous treasure of Titicaca Lake, discovered by Fritzli Bühler.
This film is based on a well-known children’s book from 1955 by Swiss author Klaus Schädelin in which the reader gets to know the world of four little rascals through the eyes of 12-year-old Eugen. Eugen and his three friends are determined to follow in mysterious Fritz Bühler’s footsteps as the biggest rascals and adventurers of all times! Their quest for a long-hidden treasure and Fritz Bühler takes them from charming Berne into the mountains and to Zurich. The director has lovingly turned this well-known book into a beautiful, humorous, sweeping film full of funny little details with regard to story, effects and dialog. We kept laughing or smiling throughout the whole film. Characters, language and music are very Swiss!
