Production Report featured in
German Films Quarterly 03/2015

Having just won the Lola for the Best Children's Film at this year's German Film Awards, THE PASTA DETECTIVES now dish up another great serving of children's and family entertainment. Once again, the well-matched and inseparable Rico and Oskar have a new, exciting case to break, one that takes them this time to the Baltic Sea. Old man Fitzke has died, leaving his beloved collection of stones to Rico. The boys discover that the most valuable one of them all has been stolen. Their true detective instincts are now in top gear! Even better, the grown-ups are away on holiday in Sri Lanka, so that's too far off to prevent the boys doing some real detecting. Of course, this being Rico and Oskar, there is far, far more to the case than first meets the eye.
