Storyline

Jonas is already head of the family at just 12 years of age. He has been helping his two younger siblings and supporting his mother, Sabine, since his father left. Sabine is very loving towards her children but she often loses her patience and disappears into her room for the day. Mysterious demons drive her to spend a weekend away to relax in the "sunny valley". But the weekend grows into weeks in which the three children hear nothing from their mother. Food and money have long since run out, the house has become more and more like a haunted castle: a spiderweb house. Jonas tries his best to maintain the appearance of an intact family. On the hunt for something to eat, he meets a young man, Felix Count of Gütersloh, who speaks in rhymes and declares himself to be not quite right in the head. Rather like a guardian angel, he takes Jonas under his wing and shows him how to get by in a world without adults. The film is less a social drama than a modern-day fairy tale shot in black and ...

a fairy tale
1 September 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

A fantasy using as start point a family crisis. The eerie atmosphere, the hypothesis of a long time independent children life, the stranger as master for new perspective about life, the neurotic mother and the so mature 12 years old boy are pieces to define the film as a fairy tale , proposing the fantastic, myths and ambiguous suggestions . A beautiful , not comfortable, bitter and special film. About family. About childhood. About options. And, sure, about the manner to defiine yourself. Short, a sort of Sweden buffet. Or only a fairy tale with many ways.
