Editorial Reviews

Living on the outer boundaries of society, an eponymous orange thief and some other country-wise ruffians steal fruit for sustenance, sale, and the sheer excitement of courting danger. After the thief ends up in a Sicilian jail, his life takes an unexpect

Customer Reviews

Ironically, this is an Italian Film written by Americans and their love of Italian Cinema is present in every shot and line.

For those unfamiliar with Roberto Benigni's humor (Jonny Stecchino,Down by Law, Life is Beautiful etc.) think of wacky or films of Woody Allen.
Douglas A. Treat
The audience LOVED it, and so did I. Charming, funny, at times philosophical and ultimately emotionally moving, with some great music to boot.

I love the Orange Thief! It takes a bit to get into, but is well worth it. It's as beautiful, funny, sad and human as Sicily itself. And could it be that with all its fruit, almonds, olives and "batches" (beaches), Sicily is still so poor because, like Rosalba, it shoots itself in the hand? If you have Southern Italian or Sicilian roots, you may see your relatives in some of these characters, or, as I did, in myself.

If you came to this movie for the Italian language, you may be disappointed. There is much Sicilian dialect, so the only recognizable Italian you hear may be that spoken by the prison guard and the tourist - disgraziati!

What ties all together is the music - great Sicilian folk music. I hope this group produces more music, and many, many more movies!

Saw this at the 2006 Milwaukee Film Festival where it received a standing ovation. The audience LOVED it, and so did I. Charming, funny, at times philosophical and ultimately emotionally moving, with some great music to boot. Why no film distributors snapped this one up really baffles me. I couldn't wait to see it again and I'm happy it's now available on DVD.

The Orange Thief is a must-see movie for anyone who loves thoughtful foreign-language films, great music, a simple tale told masterfully and/or Sicily. I too saw this at the Milwaukee Film Festival and fell in love with it. In fact, I had some of the soundtrack in my head (in a good way) for a good while. I bought it the day it came out and have already watched it twice!

In the age of fancy, big budget Hollywood movies it is easy to forget about the beauty of simplicity. Part of what makes this movie so amazing is the circumstances surrounding its production. For example, it cost only around $15k to make, had a crew of non-professional actors, and was shot in a month. Moreover the 3 directors independently filmed a part of the movie, which they then stitched together after determining which scenes to use in the final cut. And they used a SONY HDV video camera to film the entire movie.

The other part of why this movie is good is that it revolves around a simple but compelling plot line. An orphan who becomes an orange thief has a dream to own some land of his own. But the story is not dramatic as one might think; in fact, it's largely comical. There is a raw savage quality to the movie that makes it sweet, beautiful, and satisfying.

Not since Cinema Pardiso have I loved Italian Cinema SO much. Growing up watching movies like Divorce and Marriage Italian Style, you cannot help but fall in love with Italian filmes. Ironically, this is an Italian Film written by Americans and their love of Italian Cinema is present in every shot and line. I came across this film by "accident" while searching Amazon for new Italian films that I might have missed like The Wedding Director. And, with the latest Giuseppe Tornatore Baaria a HUGE disappointment, perhaps Giuseppe Tornatore should take note of The Orange Thief. This film has love, heart, song, and romance in ways that we picture Italian cinema to be. This film a such a treasure and I am deeply sorry that I never got a chance to experience it in a theater. Do yourself a favor... fall in love with this movie.... it is a film that you won't soon forget.

Guerrilla film making at its best.
With a rough story outline and a free-wheeling production approach where everyone was a director, Artie Walinksi, Vinnie Angel, Boogie Dean created an engaging glimpse at life in central Sicily.
The characters are developed and you actually care about them as they all look for and eventually find redemption from their own personal travails.
Watch for Micaela Helvetica Saxer to be the next breakout star.
The camera loves her.

Well if you came here to watch an italian movie youre out of luck. This movie is almost exclusively in the sicilian LANGUAGE. This movie is full of great pizzica music and traditional songs like Ciuri ciuri which translates to fiori fiori in italian. This movie is suprisingly sicilian... Its a young guy who is poor and love to live wild and dreams of nothing else but to have a peice of land.. he can't imagine working under a boss. He comes to love to sing in our sicilian traditions. I really cant say enough good things about this movie! The characters are very raw and they remind me of my family and friends... and the main character really reminds me of myself haha. Si voi nu pezzu ri terra e ti piaci cantari nostri cazuni e' nu beddu film. W 'u latruni d'aranci e 'a bedda Sicilia nostra!!

A great comedic film by three guys with an extremely limited budget who had a love to make a film in an ancestral land of two of them.
