If you ever get to see this film it´s a must!
27 March 2001 | by bengt_historiskaSee all my reviews

When you think of unforgettable movie experiences "Ditte Menneskebarn" immediately comes to your mind. Although I haven´t seen it for a very long time, the memory of it is still very strong. It is about the growing up of a young girl on the Danish country-side. The film is sometimes very sad and at times very poetic. The actress, who plays Ditte, gives a once in a lifetime performance. If you ever get to see this film it´s a must!
