A tale about two young boys, Prosper and Bo, who flee to Venice after being orphaned and dumped in the care of a cruel auntie. Hiding in the canals and alleyways of the city, the boys are befriended by a gang of young urchins and their enigmatic leader, the Thief Lord. From their home base of an old cinema theater, the children steal from the rich to support themselves and soon capture the interest of a bumbling detective. However, a greater threat to the children is something from a forgotten past-- a beautiful magical treasure with the power to spin time itself. Written by

When Ida takes the gang to the convent to speak with Sister Antonia about the wing, a white horse gallops across the courtyard. In the first shot (54:04 to 54:07) it has a unicorn's horn, but in the second shot (54:09 to 54:11) it does not, though it is hard to see without slow-motion or freeze-frame. This was probably done to reduce animation costs, but could have been done to indicate that others do not necessarily see what Bo sees. See more »
'Mosca' is pronounced wrong. In the film they addresses him as 'Moska', but his name should be pronounced 'Mosha'. See more »
Now tell me, what did you steal? Money, jewels? Are you lock-pickers? Purse-pickers?- Pocket-pickers?
We're not thieves.

Prosper and Bo run away from an aunt who only wants to adopt Bo. They run into the thief lord and live in the Star Palace.
Excellent! The book was spectacular as well as the movie! I recommend this to everyone. It comes out on DVD on March 14, 2006. You should most definitely watch it!Cornelia Funke did a wonderful job thinking up such a story. This has a spectacular cast. Rollo Weeks is, in my opinion, the ONLY choice for Scipio aka The Thief Lord.The plot is that with a surprise ending. My favorite character is Scipio. This movie is perfect for males and females of all ages. It was originally made in English but was dubbed for German theaters. So, every one who speaks English, don't worry! You can still see this wonderful movie!If you see it and just love it(which I know you will) you should recommend it to all your friends!
