Cache Cash 1994
1h 30min | Adventure, Comedy, Crime | 9 February 1994 (France)
Antoine, 11, is on holiday with his grandfather. One night he catches thieves hiding their booty in a pond. Antoine seizes the 40 million. But Liza, his new friend, is the daughter of one of the criminals. Both children soon face threats.
Cache Cash is a pleasant, well made film about two French Children (Aurelian Wiit and Josephine Serre) who find the loot from a bank heist. Feeling that they have been unfairly disciplined by their respective guardians, they take the money and run off to the sea shore to spend it on a good time and to release some captive lobsters from an expensive restaurant. However, they are unaware that one of the robbers, a vicious, razor wielding career criminal, is hot on their trail.
The film is charming and easy to follow despite the lack of English dubbing or subtitles. There is one positively adorable scene showing the boy, Wiit, who has angelic good looks, playing with a fawn.
The viewer should be warned, however, that this is probably not for small children. There is violence, although much of it of the slapstick variety, quick flashes of nudity (including Wiit) and one graphic if very brief sex scene.
