Character actor Michael Shannon has been nominated for his second Oscar for his role in the 2016 thriller Nocturnal Animals. "No Small Parts" takes a look at some of the other characters he's played in the past.
A kids' adventure story. Two children, Mel (Laura Syniawa) and her younger brother Tommi (Mitja-Daniel Krebs) are homeless and the adoption authorities can't find them a foster home together. So they go on the run and find an adoptive couple for themselves.
Various juvenile scrapes ensue as the children work hard to persuade the reluctant new "parents" that they really do wish to give them a home. It all looks as if things are getting worse rather than better, especially when they dye their adoptive mother Karin (Ann-Kathrin Kramer) blue by treating the swimming pool water.
Not the most demanding of films, it's really aimed at a family audience, although there is a sequence where bedroom window antics are misunderstood by neighbours.
German dialogue, despite the title.
