Equally popular with audiences and critics, the pic took home the special jury prize at the Cannes Film Festival and went on to enjoy a five-month, $ 6 million run.

“Il Ladro di Bambini” was produced by Erre Produzioni and Alia, in collaboration with pubcaster RAI-2, and will be released in the United States by Samuel Goldwyn Co. at the beginning of 1993.

The Felix awards will be presented Dec. 12 in Berlin. “Il Ladro di Bambini” has been nominated in the best European film and best European actor categories.

Young thesp Enrico Lo Verso’s sensitive portrayal of a police officer charged with accompanying two small children across Italy to an orphanage has made him one of the country’s most sought-after actors.
