Don't mess with the worlds smallest detectives
25 December 2004 | by (Brisbane, Australia) – See all my reviews

This movie is based on the popular children's book, Emil and the Detectives. Emil lives with his long-term unemployed father in a small town in eastern Germany. His father finally finds work as a vacuum-cleaner salesman. Emil's mother has left to start a new life in Canada, so when his father has a car accident, has his license revoked and is in hospital, Emil is sent to stay with his teacher's sister in Berlin. However, on the train to Berlin he befriends a stranger, who drugs and robs him. From there, it's an old-fashioned adventure as Emil meets some street smart local kids who help him track down the thief. Stars Tobias Retzlaff, Anja Sommavilla and Jürgen Vogel. Directed by Franziska Buch
