„AG Gildepreis“ for the pasta detectives

Petra Rockenfeller said in her laudation: “A colorful film with funny characters and a great story about friendship. Especially fantastic are the scenes in which Rico and Oskar have to face mean ice-cream sellers,  grumpy and child-hating neighbors and gruff taxi drivers. People who read Andreas Steinhöfel’s books would probably have imagined Rico’s world less fancy and colorful but the director succeeded in showing Rico’s thoughts and feelings. Short animation films show how Rico explains foreign words in his own way. Great actors, suspense and a great title song make a fun movie.”
