The Robber Hotzenplotz

Part of the REDCAT International Children’s Film Festival | Gernot Roll, Germany, 2005. In German with English subtitles

Two boys set out to catch the wild robber Hotzenplotz in this fantasy-filled film that brings to life the adventures of the world’s most hilarious thief. Just think, if Hotzenplotz hadn’t stolen Grandma’s beloved coffee mill, the boys would never have met a beautiful fairy trapped in the body of a slimy toad, chased after a croco-dog, been forced to peel mountains of potatoes for the evil blue-eyed magician Zwackelmann, or laid eyes on the world’s tiniest castle! Based on the legendary children’s books by Otfried Preussler. Screened with Pretend Temris Ridge, Canada, 2007. A wonderful game on the playground must come to an end when the school bell rings.

Running time: 95 minutes
Ages 6 and up
