Everybody has the sibling who is always just a little bit behind the curve when it comes to getting his life together. For sisters Liz, Miranda and Natalie, that person is their perennially upbeat brother Ned, an erstwhile organic farmer whose willingness to rely on the honesty of mankind is a less-than-optimum strategy for a tidy, trouble-free existence. Ned may be utterly lacking in common sense, but he is their brother and so, after his girlfriend dumps him and boots him off the farm, his sisters once again come to his rescue. As Liz, Miranda and Natalie each take a turn at housing Ned, their brother's unfailing commitment to honesty creates more than a few messes in their comfortable routines. But as each of their lives begins to unravel, Ned's family comes to realize that maybe, in believing and trusting the people around him, Ned isn't such an idiot after all.

The film can be likened to Lois Patio's Costa Da Morte, only this documentary uses similar methods to tell a far more contemplative story of Nepal's cultural, religious and social history.

She was great as the cat.Mark Walton was alright as the over-the-top Gerbil.Definitely geared towards youth but it still kept me interested.

Nothing here makes a huge impact and it even becomes tedious at times, but Thieves Like Us takes a likable and unique approach to the familiar "bank robbers on the run" tale. The central love story is sweet, awkward, and vaguely sad, while the cinematography and period detail make it an engrossing film even in its slowest stretches. A nice example of unconventional, subdued 1970's filmmaking.
