This kiddie-matinee oriented diversion is a Japanese adaptation of Erich Kaestner's oft-filmed novel Emil and the Detectives. When a young boy is robbed of his mother's money while en route to the Big City, a group of youthful, would-be detectives dedicate themselves to getting the money back. While trailing the thief, the young protagonists stumble into an elaborate bank-robbery scheme, commandeered by an erudite, self-indulgent master thief. Before long, the preteen gumshoes are obliged to save their "client's" life -- and with precious little time to spare. Emil to Tantei Tachi was released in English-speaking countries as The Boy Detectives.
