Incredible combination of realistic and fantastic ingredients
1 January 2004 | by (Stuttgart, Germany) – See all my reviews

One of the best movies for kids I`ve ever seen. Children - mine included - like it a lot, and that`s most important for a kid`s film. The Children`s Jury at the Stuttgart Film Festival 2003 voted it "Best Children`s Film" at the festival.

Two kids - about 11 years old - Marcello and Fatima, meet and like each other very much. Both have dreams and problems. Marcello wants to fly but feels like an absolutely useless human being, Fatima wants to play soccer - which is not acceptable for her muslim family. But then they start to support each other in a very delicate and subtle manner...

The film combines realistic moments and problems with dreams and imagination, especially Marcello`s. I.e. there is a statue of Jesus Christ waking up and talking to him in a humoristic way. Grown-ups will maybe have some problems with that, but children like the fact, that the world consists of both - reality and their imagination.

Children and their way seeing the world are taken seriously in this film, which is very rare in feature films for children!

Very good for Children aged ca. 8 - 12.
