Storyline

When Madelief's grandmother dies, her mother takes her to the funeral. She then visits her grandfather, but quickly gets bored, until Mischa tells her how much fun a rural summer can be. She investigates her grandmother's "summer house", made curious by the lock on the door. Madelief didn't remember her grandmother, but from her snooping in the summer house she learns a lot about her. Written by Steve Schonberger

highly recommended: gentle, moving and intelligent
23 February 2002 | by (sydney, australia) – See all my reviews

what a great movie. walk down a country road to a country house. no hyperbole.

over a time of bad experiences, it's easy to become resentful and distant to our parents. but grandaughter madelief reminds us how children can show us how to love those closest to us again.

madelief never knew her grandmother but through her persistent exploration, she uncovers the heart and mind of her grandmother. though her grandmother has died, she eventually reconciles her mother to her grandmother by sharing her insights. very moving & inspiring.

editing, performances, shots, and the pace were all great. see it if you can!
