Life becomes troublesome when 10-year-old Kalle's newborn sister has a birth defect on her back resembling wings. Only he sees the true miracle of his sister's odd appendages. When she is sent to the renowned Plastic Palace Clinic of cosmetic surgery for an amputation, Kalle sets out on a rescue mission. On the road, he meets Alf, a reclusive mechanic, who agrees to help. Together, they take off in Alf's vintage Cadillac in a race against time through an autumn-colored world of song and dance. Written by
following Kalle through this movie is a fantastic voyage of kitch music and cinematography! As a close resemblance to a previous movie by the same producers (hannibal og jerry), this story is great for adults and kids alike -though not a date movie. stylized and filmed in a very bright and Barbie-ken universe, and with a fun and quirky soundtrack, it carries with it a very special style not found anywhere else...
the only thing that prevents this moving from reaching a ten, are the very things that make it so good: 1: you probably have to be a Dane to really enjoy the songs and dialogue fully! 1b: the Dane aspect counts greatly, as this movie is packed with cameo appearances by the best singers, comedians and actors in Denmark. 2: it conveys a very special feel and "folksy" perfect world... it is definitely a movie you would have to give a chance and try to move into the mindset and feel of it!
that said, WATCH THIS MOVIE! its great fun
