Pickpockets challenge Bob Arno to a test of skills...
We keep hearing doubts about the thieves in the documentary PICKPOCKET KING. No—they are not actors! We chose Naples for this project because of the high number of pickpockets in the city. Naples is a city of immense charm, beauty, and energy. Neapolitans have natural charisma—even the thieves! It's hard to dislike such charmers; yet they steal for a living. Our film makes you feel the contrast between the thieves' personalities and their vocation.
