Little brother on a thief hunt

(Lillebror på tjuvjakt)

11 year old Lillebror (little brother) and his best friend, Jens, are two “eye-spies” with lively imaginations and inventiveness. They are always out to blow the cover on some new villains. When Lillebror’s father gets a job as head of security at the city toy museum and his big sister comes home with a new boyfriend who just seems interested in the Dad’s new job, Lillebror’s suspicions are immediately awakened and perhaps he’s not too far off this time.

A planned robbery of an exhibition of valuable objects in a museum is planned, but who is going to believe a couple of fellows who always have a new yarn to spin? Lillebror and Jens have to simply take things into their own hands and do their best to put a spanner in the works for the villains.

Little brother on a thief hunt went down as well with the public as it did with the critics. The film won the Audience Award at the Kristianstad International Children’s Film Festival in 2003. Castro financed the whole film with 12 SEK million, the largest part of which was private funds.
