I have to admit that I haven't even seen the whole movie, but watched some television late at night and while zapping the magical photography of Manneken Pis caught my attention. From that moment the dreamy pictures and the atmospheric musical score of the movie kept fascinating me. The cute lead actress Antje de Boeck is filmed in such a tender way that it feels as if the whole crew had fallen in love with her. A very charming movie that makes you fall in love with it.
I'm definitely going to buy this gem on DVD.
