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
Kasey and Toby
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 »
What you do is your choice. But I can't do this.
What about Bo? Think how happy he'd be
Bo wants me as a brother, not a father.

After finishing reading the book, I heard about the movie coming out in 2006. Of course I didn't expect much, only because books being turned into movies turn out bad. But i have say, this movie was probably the best movie i have seen in many years. This movie just blew me, and not only me, but my family away. The film was amazingly detailed and explained the character very well. The effects for this movie were just magical. This film isn't the blockbuster of the year, but this movie did have amazing acting, the effects were really well done for a low-budget movie. And, the most important, it did stay very true to the book and left very little out. Looking back on some book/movies, they leave a lot out and some of the movies don't turn out that great for some people. But this movie left out very little, and a lot of people will be very pleased. The movie overall will get a 10/10 because Cornelia Funke is just an extremely amazing writer, and the movie was just so magical and exciting, all people of any age will love it. And don't forget to catch Cornelia's soon to be made into a movie, Inkheart.
