An unpredictably enjoyable movie
15 March 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

At first when i saw Emil & The detectives i did not think it was a children's film. I stumbled upon it in the school holidays when there was nothing to do.I thought it was going to be a sad drama film when i saw how Emil and his father lived - they seemed quite sad . I continued watching it to see how the film would go, but it wasn't what i expected. It's about a young boy, Emil who, because of unforeseen events, goes to Berlin to live with his teacher's sister. On the way more trouble lies, but luckily Emil has some new friends to help him out. This is probably the best German film i've seen so far. I recommend it for children under the age of 10. It also has some funny scenes. I give it 8 stars.
