Storyline

Engineer Quiller has become rich by selling his completely indestructible shop-window glass to jeweleries around the world. But this got him lots of enemies too: the insurance agencies, who've lost hundreds of customers, and the burglarers. When he temporarily looses his memory and voice in an accident, of all people, a family of thieves finds and cares for him - believing he's a pocket-picker. Things get complicated when he falls in love with his host Tilli. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

Very nice comedy!
10 November 2001 | by See all my reviews

I was very enjoyed! :) funny, subtle, NON-hollywood movie with talented actors and Adriano Celentano, of course! Each character is drawn perfectly. If you see it - you won't be disappointed - it's NOT "2001: Space Travesty" or "Scary movie" or the like ;)One bad thing: the final is not as good as it can be - that's why i voted only 9 :)
