The Children Thief

A Feature film by Christian de Chalonge

Produced by Starlet Film, G.I.C.A., Dean Film, Ciné 5

Release in France : 25/09/1991


    Although he was once a colonel in Argentina, Colonel Philemon Bigua is now a wealthy exile living in Paris with his beloved wife, who has been unable to bear children. To fill this void in their lives, he feeds and clothes abandoned children, raising them in his mansion as if they were his own. No one objects to this behavior, and they live pleasantly and enjoyably together. Things grow considerably more animated when a stage magician places his very attractive daughter in the colonel's household, which stirs a lively romantic interest from his boys and from the great man himself.
