Great portrayal, but lack of ideas.
9 April 2012 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

The acting of the kids was really good. They were portrayed realistic, which made out most of the charm. Yet, in the end, the movie got a little unrealistic turn into somewhat like an action movie, which was definitely unnecessary (except they ran out of ideas). It seemed to me, as if the director wanted to show that he can shoot also action-scenes. All in all the ideas were a little few, which were also not completely new. The supporting characters did not have much originality. Especially the ending was little bit too conventional and foreseeable.

Portray of two kids was great, yet the story lacked of originality and ideas. Since the movie is just 78min long, it's worth watching.
