Adapted from Mihail Sadoveanu's 1926 novel. Lizuca is a 6 year old girl whose mother died and whose father is married to a nasty woman. She has to leave her grandparents, who she lived with for a while, because her stepmother needs her. Because Lizuca has inherited a forest from her mother. She is neglected and mistreated by her new stepmother and her father is never there. But together with her dog, she knows how to escape.
it is easy to criticize it . the visual effects are horrible, the science of director to translate the beautiful story by Sadoveanu - far to be credible. but it has the chance of few good actors - the young Diana Muscă as Lizuca does an admirable job - , crumbs from the original text and a pretty dog - only its voice is absolutely a torture instrument -. sure, it could be better. sure, it must be better. but for many generations, the memories about the film, the atmosphere, ignoring the bizarre solutions for create the magical universe of the wood , are beautiful. the dialogues has not the original poetry and the delicacy of childhood, its miracles are lost. but something remains. the flavor of a try. not the greatest. but enough for a film who gives to the viewer the chance to imagine better solution for a beautiful story.
