Remarkable, fresh, heart felt told story
13 February 2003 | by (maryland) – See all my reviews

I've seen this film at the 1991 Berlin Film Fest 12 years ago and I still consider it today as one of the best foreign films to this date. It reminds me a lot of Lasse Hallstrom's My Life as a Dog. It's about a little boy who loses his mother and due to fear of the orphanage, enlists the help of his classmate to hide this fact from teachers and authorities, only their help is much more than he bargain for. I think this film is a must see for those who are looking for a fresh story without overly dramatic scenes and over acting children. One user mention they showed this film to their French class. I couldn't think of a better film. Open your eyes and your mind and give this film a chance. You will not be sorry.
