Michelle von Treuberg,
Pünktchen and Anton are closest of friends. Being the daughter of a wealthy surgeon, young Pünktchen lives in a great house. Her mother, who always travels through the world more for public relation reasons than for the social tasks she pretends to fulfill, is never available to her as a mother. Anton, son of a single and sick mother in financial trouble, does his best to help her out of it by working late. Pünktchen decides to help her only friend (as nobody else would anyway) and starts singing in public places. Trouble arises when Anton can't resist stealing a golden lighter and Pünktchen's secret life is discovered by her parents. Two troubled families finally can see the need for actions to be taken.Written by

I wouldn't normally go to a film designated as for children, but I was encouraged by the previous IMDB reviews. Pünktchen and Anton are friends. Pünktchen has rich parents but not enough attention from her mother. Anton is poor but with a lovely mother. There are a number of bad films this could be, ranging from fluffy candyfloss with a contrived and implausible happy ending, to grim social realism. But the film avoids all these traps and has a satisfactory and convincing ending. There is also a huge amount of very well done action, including a a little slapstick of the sort I'm more used to seeing in black-and-white with piano accompaniment. In particular this film ought to be nominated for a Food Oscar if such existed, because the number of times food is used as a plot device is staggering. I enjoyed this film and so did the children in the cinema.
