Storyline

Selma's mother died giving birth to her, and Selma's step aunt is living proof that men only cause trouble. So the 11 year old girl makes a deal with her best friends that they will stay away from boys and dedicate their lives to science. And by the way, Selma was probably born on another planet and not meant to fall in love with anyone. But what happens when her friends break the pact, and she actually meets a boy who's not like the rest? A beautiful story about exploring and finding out about life and what you want, and how difficult it can be sometimes. Especially when "nature" works against your principles and beliefs...

Adorable children's movie on first love
21 February 2005 | by willyboy1973See all my reviews

Being my first movie in this year's Berlin Film Festival, this was a treat. A story about a 12 year old girl experiencing first love more or less against her will, set in rural Norway (beautiful photography). Elin grows up in a chaotic family where men and women just don't get along with each other. She decides never to be interested in boys and to concentrate on science instead. But things change when she befriends a boy who seems to share her interests and a mysterious Swede appears...

Unlike many other children's movies of this year's festival, "The Colour of Milk" has a very light atmosphere and its script sparkles with humour. Rewarded by a Special Mention from the children's jury, this is fun to see for both older children and grown-ups. (8 points)
