Childhood memories.
11 February 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie bring lots of memories to me. I use to watch this movie every time my cousin would come to my house. He was a fan of that movie. I think I still have it somewhere in my stuff. The story is simple... A little weak boy,who's having a bad time in school and at home find a friend into a crane driver. He's told that one of the container can makes your dream almost come true. Anyway...Funny parts in the movie and sad ones too. Worth to see. It's a kid movie but also good for adult since it's also a drama etc... The movie is Danish and I never really seen the actors anywhere after. I must say that I'm from Canada so I didn't see lots of Danish movies but still the movie was well done and showed what it needed too.
