A Little Worm is a 1995 short film directed by Marc Benardout. It stars Vincent Riotta and Issy Van Randwyck. The short film was distributed theatrically by Buena Vista with the feature film Ed Wood by director Tim Burton. It was shown on television by Channel 4 on their series "The Shooting Gallery".



In 1929, in Chicago, 12-year-old Larry Adler was heralded as a prodigy of the harmonica. Having left home for a life on the road and stage, Adler tagged along with his musical buddies to a party thrown at the apartment of underworld leader Al Capone.

When Capone spies the Young upstart he chastises him for turning up uninvited in front of all of his guests. In a moment of raw nerves, young Larry is unfazed and as a result, Capone's temper is thwarted and he rewards the boy with a drink at his table and an anecdote of jury bribery that went south. Unfortunately, this was a little above young Larry's head but he lived to tell the tale and won kudos from his peers.


Sinner was chosen as an official selection in the Barcelona Film Festival, Hamptons Film Festival, Houston Worldfest, New York Albany Film Festival, Cork Film Festival, British Short Film Festival, Wrexham Film Festival(Wales), Huy Film Festival (Belgium), and Kino Film Festival.
