12-year-old Luis is often lonely. He doesn't have any friends and his father, the ufologist Armin Sonntag, doesn't have any time for him. He's obsessed with proving the existence of intelligent life in space, spends all night at his telescope and all day sleeping. The principal thinks Luis is neglected and should be sent to a home. Then three goofy aliens crash on Luis's doorstep: Mog, Nag and Wabo are in search of a massage mat they saw on earth's home shopping TV, the NubbiDubbi. Luis is thrilled, quickly befriends them and hides them from his dad, who is convinced aliens are dangerous and should be shock frosted at first sight. When boarding school director Miss Diekendaker shows up and wants to take Luis away, Luis and his alien friends have to come up with a plan to contact the mother ship and get the ETs rescued. Luis is even tempted to leave his home planet and go explore the galaxy with his cool new friends.


– Press Clippings – 

“Luis and the Aliens not only has a good story to show, but also a successful mixture of humor, sophisticated animation and family suitability to be found here. The adults have just as much fun with the interspersed gimmicks and covers as the young viewers have with the turbulent action sequences and the quirky little aliens.”


"A breath of fresh air, in its creativity more than in its original subject matter, far from the familiar antics of a certain big-eared black mouse, this animated film is playful, funny, intelligently produced and opens the well-secured doors of UFOlogy for adults.”


“In terms of animation, "Luis and the Aliens" can't keep up with the competition from Hollywood, but that is made up for with a lot of humor and ingenuity. Great entertainment for the whole family.”
