Dakota Blue Richards,
One day a nerdy middle-aged small-town man gets an exotic companion who can make wishes come true. Because the creature looks funny and behaves in an obnoxious way, he encounters all kinds of funny and embarrassing situations.
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

I loved the book, so naturally I wanted an accurate adaptation. The movie was a wonderful translation from book to film although of course there were a few minor details that I was disappointed about. It was also very, very good for a low budget movie. The characters were just as lovable, if not more, on screen as they were in the book. The acting was good for the most part although at times it could get a little dull, and at times a tad overdone, but still it was completely believable. Some parts were quite touching and others were hilariously funny. There was just the right balance of humor and seriousness to make it grounded and interesting at the same time. It was creatively done and very entertaining. And I would still recommend it to you if you haven't read the book.
