Storyline

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.

Wonderful, magical movie
10 March 1999 | by tin-3See all my reviews

It's a great film, not only for children, it's a movie for the family. The "old" story of Erich Kästner from 1931 in a young and fresh adaption, but - thanks Caroline Link - you can recognize the story. The actors are playing great, the music is fantastic.
