Sanne Wallis de Vries,
My family and I were very entertained by this delightfully moving , thoughtful, and amusing film which is based on Een Kleine Kans , the award winning book by Marjolijn Hof . The acting is natural , and excellent , with a fine performance by the newcomer Pippa Allen aged 10 yrs, playing the part of Kiek . The good reviews are well justified - it is a beautiful 'family movie ' - which will appeal to young and old alike . The clever animated sections are very good too as they indicate what might be going on in the mind of young Kiek who worries a lot about her doctor father being in a dangerous war zone in Afghanistan . The film exercises the emotions - a child of eight trying to cope with her anxieties and searching for a solution . Rather bizarre solutions result , involving a sick old mouse , and a dog , and many adventures ! It is so well directed too , and hopefully it will be distributed beyond Europe , with appropriate subtitles .
