Nono, a Dutch kid lacking two days being thirteen, runs away from problems at home and, disguised as a girl, takes up with the world's cleverest thief, who unbeknownst to Nono, may hold the bizarre key to his true identity.
Fedja van Huêt,
Great slang from different countries. The subtitles are spot on. The cast reflects the international story and production. The kids look and act like kids. Even the irresponsible adults still show a care and regard for the children. Interesting political undertones of international soccer as a business. while fund raising for UNICEF. The Movie shows some of the nicer parts of Mexico city we do not usually see in the US. The Argentine Soccer reporters have a dynamic that mirrors some of our nutty football commentary in the US. Overall a refreshing Non Disney film devoid of pink, plastic surgery and lip gloss.
