Pretty Cool film, full of tricks
19 April 2009 | by (Russian Federation) – See all my reviews

I love most of the films made by Ted Nicolaou. He is very experimental film maker. Every his film is a discovery. This time he surprised with really bright film for kids. The story is about young genius who makes his own world out of the remote controlled toys, who help him to entertain himself. He has got a lot of planes and helicopters, dolls etc.. He also has very good friends, a girl and a black boy with whom they like to ride their bicycles. But one day main character's mother prohibits the boy to play with his toys-that is why he found some other place to play with them, facing three local robbers who came to the same place. Unfortunately I did not see this film when I was 9-12- otherwise I would love the film even more. Respect to Ted www.myspace.com/neizvestnostlab
