Movie Details

Two years after losing both her husband and an unborn baby in a single week, Alice (Julie Walters) hopes to satisfy her maternal urges by adopting a baby. Unfortunately, the adoption agencies in Britain and the Continent are unable to match up Alice with her much-coveted newborn child. Dragging her reluctant new boyfriend along, Alice heads to the poverty-stricken inner regions of Venezuela, there to find a baby by whatever means possible, legal or otherwise. First telecast on Britain's BBC1 under its original title Bambino Mio, this 90-minute film has been released to video in Europe as Mon Enfant. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
