Storyline

Ten years ago Wolf and Sabine Palfy got divorced. Since then their daughter Charlie grew up with her father and her twin sister Louise lived with her mother. They never knew anything about one another and thus only met by chance when they join a boarding school in Scotland. At first they cannot stand each other but after a while they start gathering information about their origin. Realizing their relationship they plan to bring their parents back together: Thus, Charlie visits her mother and pretends to be Louise, whereas her sister goes to the father pretending to be Charlie.

Nice
27 March 2005 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

The story of Erich Kästner is transfered to the presence and some differences are added which obviously should reflect the society reality of contemporary Germany: Wheras in Kästner's story the father is a successful composer who lives in old fashioned prosperity and, and the mother is a modern and hard-working journalist who lives in more simple conditions, now it's the mother who is very successful whereas the father is unsuccessful as an composer and quite chaotic. Other differences: In Kästner's story and the earlier film the girls meet in Bavaria whereas nowadays it's more likely to send children to Scotland for vacation. The differences aren't obtrusive and seem reasonable - as opposed to the 2001remake of another Kästner story, Emil und die Detektive / Emil and the Detectives which tries to ingratiate itself with the nowadays audience in a very fashionable and superficial way. This one instead manages to keep faith to Kästner and the atmosphere he wanted to create then. Certainly it's a mainstream entertainment film, and it's not a great one (like some Astrid Lindgren films by Olle Hellbom) but entertaining it is and it's sometimes even quite moving indeed, the old story has some good turnarounds and ideas which don't spoil the original story and the actors are very good and take it seriously. All in all it's a nice film: 6 out of 10
