A girl of roughly nine years feels ignored by her wealthy, elitist mother, hides in the backseat of a vacant car in an attempt to teach her a lesson. Soon, the owners, two bumbling thieves, return and unintentionally kidnap the lass. Uncertain what to do with the girl, they take her to their hideout in the mountains. The threesome then forms a loving bond, grows close, yet the cops are not far behind, are zeroing in on the supposed abductors. Think of a more family-oriented version of Redneck to get the idea.
Checking out the French [REQ] forum, I realized I had a pretty good VHS copy of this movie AND 'Papa est parti, maman aussi' that I had transferred to DVD. They seemed to rip pretty well, and although the MB's are pretty low [450 MB's for 100 min movies] the quality is fairly good.
Rich gave you the IMDB link. Here's another synopsis:
This is a remake of the 1982 film Savannah Smiles. Colin (Jacques Higelen) and Mailland (Daniel Martin) are small-time crooks on the run who are surprised to find the seven-year-old runaway Savannah (Elodie Gautier) is along for the ride. The police and her parents fear she has been kidnapped, and a massive manhunt is launched with orders to shoot to kill the alleged perpetrators. The lovable little girl soon melts the hearts of the crooks, as the trio enjoy an unlikely but sentimental friendship. The late Marcel Bozzuffi makes his last screen appearance as Coplan, the confident cop in charge of recovering Savannah. Rene Feret plays Savannah's father, a hypocritical politician.
While the young girl might be a tad 'prettier' than Bridgette Anderson in 'Savannah Smiles', she can't hold a candle to Bridgette's sheer 'cuteness'.
This movie is played a bit straighter than 'Savannah Smiles', that is, with less slapstick comedy. Unfortunantly that works to the detriment of the over all film. It's slower paced, and I don't really get into ANYONE'S character in the film hence I couldn't care less what happened to any of them. Part of that could be due to the language barrier; though I knew the plot there were quite a few VERY long, drawn-out talky sequences...
BUT, Savannah STILL takes a bath!
