A wee witch of 'only' 147 years dreams of joining the Bloxberg coven and sneaks into its annual festival to dance, but is caught. She opts for a punishment with perspective: she may take the admission text next year if she has learned all the spells from the huge magic book. However a hostile witch, appointed by the chief witch to supervise her all year, observes her break the ban on magic on Fridays and befriended two kids of the despised human race. Having learned the spells and practices many, she still turns up for her test, which turns ugly for all.Written by
If you don't know this, the writer of the book is famous in Germany /Europe. The book of the little witch is famous in Europe and may be also in the US.
However, this movie -a Swiss German production - is great, I really enjoyed it and Karoline Herfurth is close to brilliant in the role of the little witch and Swiss Mike Schaerer is really excellent in directing the film. The settings are enchanting, CGI is very good but not perfect and if you look at Otfried Preußler's message at the end of the movie, I found it is not only for kids.
Enjoyable movie for the whole family.
