A film was made in German in 1986. Michael Ende involved himself in the production of the film, after having been disappointed in the adaptation of ''Film/TheNeverendingStory''. FYI, the best way to get the DVD is from South Korea via Ebay, as that version is All-Region and has English subtitles. The European version is Region 2 only and has no subtitles.

* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: Gigi's biggest dream is to become famous (in the book by telling stories, in the movie by becoming a singer). When his dream comes true, he eventually feels lonely and empty and even says "Momo, the most dangerous things in life are idle wishes that come true."
