Wonderful independent film
9 October 2015 | by (Yorkshire) – See all my reviews

Nimmermeer (AKA Nevermore) tells the story of Jonas, a young boy who lives a happy, albeit impoverished life with his fisherman father until one day his dad fails to return from the sea. He is adopted by a well-intentioned but heartless clergyman and loses all sense of joy in his life. Can he learn to smile again? Only a carny freak holds the key...

Beautifully filmed with a fairytale aura, this is German cinema at its best. Aimed at older children (it's too psychologically scary for younger ones) this movie will touch the hearts of all ages.

The German dialogue is straightforward for anyone with a working knowledge of the language, otherwise English subtitles are available from opensubtitles.org
