A refreshingly simple and unsentimental film with a great message
3 February 2003 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

A realistic and direct film with an unremitting positive message, which sinks in and exhilarates the viewer. If only we had more "Taranehs" in the world!

Watching this strong 15-year-old tackle problems in her difficult life is a very heart-warming experience. Few other films have managed to impart so simply so much good feeling towards life.
