A very enjoyable film
26 March 2001 | by See all my reviews

Because this is a film for adults with a child as the main character, it has never really got the attention it ought. But actually it´s a very subtle and touching Danish film about a child´s loss of innocence. It was the first film of Carsten Rudolf and won the two main Danish film awards, the Bodilprize and the Robertprize for best film.
