This is a family film based on a novel by Jens Peder Larsen scripted by film maker Erik Clausen, who also has a role in the movie, but it is not the usually comedy type film. I have had a fondness for the Swedish director Stellan Olsson since having experienced his moody 'Sven Klang's kvintet' in my youth dealing with the difficult conditions of pulling off a creative career. He has not made many films, but they are all fine, this one included. The teenage girl Rosa is slightly handicapped with her leg but that does not drag her down. Her mother pursues a creative career in the big cities and Rosa is left in the province with her quiet father being a painter himself. The convincing liveliness of Rosa shines through, and the village has a number of quaint but sympathetic characters. A setback is that she is attracted to a boy in school who does not look her way. The secluded existence in the small village could easily affect her emotionally, but she keeps up the good spirit a long time. In the end, a story element introduced to work towards a more happy end does not work out being convincing.
