Trivia

David Hoppe (Robert) and Julia Martinek (Johanna) had trouble in school, especially in maths and English. Therefore a trailer was set up near the filming locations, decorated with a sign "Schule" (school), where both of them had to spend several hours a week. See more »

80s nostalgia... worth seeing!
22 January 2005 | by br-19See all my reviews

I've just seen this film on a festival, and having grown up in the Eighties, I enjoyed it a lot. (And I wonder whether it gets screened a lot these days, encouraging children to found secret pirate clubs, run away and have adventures...) Those were the days: running around without safety helmets and mobile phones, climbing trees, and even catching live chicken --! Well, that's about it in the action department, and that's why the movie depicts a great and believable children's adventure. The young (and especially the elderly) actors did a very endearing performance, and the story unfolds without hectic and really engaging.

Maybe a bit too long for real children, but worth seeing!
