Critic Reviews for Emil und die Detektive (Emil and the Detectives)

All Critics (3) | Fresh (3)

  • Most of the children play very naturally and you can see how much they like It. And the audience likes it too, children as well as grown-ups, though I do not think that the film is quite as tastefully done as the book is written.

  • In its narrative aspect, as in its technique, "Emil and the Detectives" is also perfect, vigorous, of a firm line and of an essential pictorial value in many moments. [Full Review in Spanish]

    February 29, 2020 | Full Review…
  • It's a lively, funny, exciting tale of a country mouse collaborating with streetwise city kids, and it creates a splendid picture of bustling life in the capital of Weimar Germany.
