Seven year-old Albert is the son of a Las Vegas circus performer. When she is killed in a car wreck, Albert is sent to live with his mother's foster sister, Harriet Franklin, a no-nonsense businesswoman struggling in New Jersey. Albert hates it with the dour Harriet, but takes refuge in the company of Bogus, a flamboyant, gentle, loving, and altogether imaginary Frenchman. With Bogus's help, Albert can perhaps come to terms with his mother's death, and Harriet with her own loss of childhood innocence. Written by

Albert's mother's car stalls at the intersection of Desert Inn Road and Paradise Road, but the collision takes place near Jerry's Nugget, more than four miles away in real life. The wrecked car then reappears at Desert Inn and Paradise. See more »
Bogus is one of the saddest movies I have ever seen. I know that a lot of people didn't like the film, but I have seen hundreds of movies and have not found one that made me cry like Bogus did. After seeing Dancer in the Dark I thought that no movie could ever strike me as being sad, but this one did. Although this might not have been Gerard Depardieu's best performance or Goldberg's, the film is unique. I recommend this movie to anyone who likes any of the actors or just wants to see an interesting movie.
