Storyline

Bonnie, a nine-year-old single child, is part of a family of three living in the Netherlands. They have a love of elephants, passed on by Bonnie's grandfather's grandfather who worked on a game reserve in Africa, and Bonnie feels that she instinctively does things like an elephant as a result. Her single mother, Lis, is bi-polar and at times spends days on end without even getting out of bed. Then there are other times when she will manically do wild acts, such as impromptu dancing in public. As a result, Bonnie's sturdy and stable grandmother must hold the family together by doing all the cooking, etc. After her grandmother is killed by a car, Bonnie becomes the most responsible family member and struggles with preparing meals and getting her reluctant mother to take her medication. She also must dodge Jorien, a social worker who is attempting to place her in a foster home. When her friend from school, Koos, gets a new brother Bonnie decides that this is the solution to fight the ... Written by Brian Greenhalgh

Sublime Dutch youth film
17 October 2005 | by (The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Bonnie is living in a villa with her mother Liz and her grand mom. Grand mom has to take care of most of the upbringing of Bonnie as Liz is ill. She's very depressed sometimes but at other times she is extremely happy. Bonnie really would like to have a little brother or sister. When grandma dies things get worse. Liz cannot take care of Bonnie and it looks as if social workers will take Bonnie away from Liz. She then tries to find a nice man for her mother, with a responsible father she might be able to still live with her mother... This film is very well made, the acting is fine, there's a lot of drama but also some comedy as well. When I saw it both children (I guess it's nice for kids aged 6 and older) and their parents were equally impressed.
