Touching and honest
19 November 2019 | by fourletteredSee all my reviews

''Bille'' is an emotionally stirring portrait of a young girl thrown in a harsh environment that truthfully portrays the specific time in history of Latvia. Bille is a child affected by poverty and her mothers frequent temper-tantrums and judgement. Nontheless, she is able to persist and, unlike many other girls her age, maintain her own, personal judgement on the changing world around her. ''Bille'' is a story about a child's dream, her longing, the reality and people around her. This movie is welcoming you into the house of a young girls mind and struggles she faces. It is a look through her own eyes and a melancholic, sometimes uplifting and mostly refreshingly honest expression of her own truth.
