One of the best European movies about childhood. It transcends totalitarian realities of a post-war Soviet-occupied town to address the most important eternal questions faced by children and their parents alike: self-identity, value human relations, love, vulnerability of a human being, meaning of innocence. I highly recommend this film not so much to kids as to the adults who could rediscover a child in themselves and re-live their initiation into our society that more often than not disregards an individual and is so much result orientated rather than spiritual. It is also interesting to parents who are bringing up preschool age kids and look for more insights into child psychology of this age group to understand the challenges they might face in the near future.
