Today I saw Le Mozart des pickpockets, which is an Oscar® nominee in the Live Action Short Film category.
France's Philippe Pollet-Villard wrote and directed this comedy about two thieves that accumulate passports, cash and credit cards from unknowing victims and somehow along the way pick up a deaf-mute child. Their banter is borderline charming as they work to communicate with their new 'son' and continue the cons that make their living.
I enjoyed this film quite a lot—even though one scene made me grab my purse from the chair next to me where it was resting.
It takes a non-admirable practice and brings light to it in an Odd Couple spirit (and adding in the cute kid doesn't hurt).
You'll probably leave the theater smiling in spite of yourself.
