Trivia

Colors are quite important in this movie. The girl feels empty, alone, when she's surrounded and dressed in blue. Whenever people are happy, they're red, e.g. in the end when the girl starts talking, she suddenly wears a very red sweater, in stead of the usual blue clothes See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Girl Age 7: Hey diddle diddle, the cow did a piddle behind the kitchen door. The little dog laughed to see such fun, so the cat did a little bit more.

From a mother's point of view
29 April 1999 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This movie opened my eyes and got me down to a 7 year old's level. Actually I should say up to a 7 year old's level, in this movie the adults seemed more childish than the child!

It was great to see life in a not so harmonious household from the child's point of view! So many things I've heard myself say to my own child, the mother in the film said and I swear I will always think before speaking to my kids!

It's a very original and thought provoking movie - I recommend it to everyone!
