Story about a boy who has good reasons to suspect his parents being aliens.
A very simple and touching universal story. Wonderful actors. Unique locations and a masterpiece of cinematography. Altogether a small but thrilling, sweet and charming movie. I especially adore the acting of the young boy - you hardly ever see a child actor with such intensity and screen-effectiveness. Another big point for the film is its clever balance between wittyness and sadness, a balance which is well suported by the score and music. An excellent European film for children and family audiences, which will cross borders.
