A true story to reflect on
11 September 2011 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I read the original book "Dschungelkind" some years ago and was simply amazed. Despite simple language the perceptible clash of cultures described with so much feeling was astonishing. This film does not entirely reach up to the book, but still catches one's heart and depicts the life of Sabine Kuegler very believably.

Always keeping in mind this is an entirely true story with nothing made up, this biography makes one really think about how life could have been different and what perfect world means for yourself.

Overall I can strongly recommend this film although reading the book before watching this film is probably the better order since this is even more thought-provoking.
