Nice way to show what children feels and knows
25 January 2002 | by (Århus, Denmark) – See all my reviews

This short animation movie shows in a fine way what children feels about death. It's nice to hear when they see there grandparents in the clouds or has a nice fantasy about a nice God up in a heaven where you can play football. Less nice to hear of children loosing a little brother, having cancer - thinking about if they want to stay alive or loosing their pet animals. However, it is all part of life and death and belongs in the movie.

In my opinion the best thing about the movie, is that the end shows a child saying that she really doesn't think to much about death, since she still have so much time to live. Well, she of course wont know how long she has left, but children should know about death, not use to much time thinking about it, and that is to me a good point. 8/10!
