Wandermusiker Vitalis kauft der gütigen Mutter Barberin das Findelkind Rémi ab und zieht mit dem Jungen, drei Hunden und einem Affen durchs Land. Eine gehbehinderte Gräfin beauftragt zur gleichen Zeit ihren Schwager, ihr einst entführtes Kind zu suchen. Doch dieser beauftragt einen zwielichtigen Kerl, das Kind zu töten. Währenddessen wird der Wandermusiker von einer schönen Musikerin als einsitiger Opernstar Vitalo Pedrotti wiedererkannt. Die schöne Dame konfrontiert ihn mit seiner Vergangenheit - sie kannte ihn von der Scala di Milano - und zeigt sich spendabel. Doch der kleine Remi ist derweil in größter Gefahr... Die Neuverfilmung des Klassikers von Hector Malot läßt den Wandermusiker nicht in der Halbzeit sterben, sondern macht ihn zur Hauptfigur. Written by Brott

surprisingly sweet

As a child i read "Sans Famille" numerous times. I always thought it would make a wonderful film and wonder why it never made it to the big screen. Well, the past few weeks I've been hooked on my telly when I accidentally found the TV series. It's amazing how much it follows the book, though some adventures Remi has alone are left behind but I think that helps us stick to the main story. The landscapes are amazing and the whole work has a romantic whiff. Watching this TV series takes me back to my childhood. The actor playing Vitalis is just perfect for the character. I haven't watched all episodes so far to have a complete overview but I consider it a very good children's series and not just for children. It sure does remind me of the kid I used to be.

Wonderful job by the actors, amazing landscapes, follows the book with touching music, it's almost better than the book. 9/10
