Lotta is a five old girl living in Sweden with her mother, father, brother and sister. She is living the very normal life of all children of her age. She is usually bold to grown up. And all in all very funny. The humor is all the time present but don't expect to much action or big laughing.
The film is divided in more or less five short stories and the pace is very slow. I think this format is perfect for young children who are not used to long stories.
Though the film is about 75 min long, my children thought it was very short and fast.
My both children (3 and 5 years old) loved that film. That was the first film they have ever seen in a cinema. They have been very impressed. What a success! They both want to go back again and watch the second part.
