One of the great foreign movies for kids.
on May 20, 2017
I bought this because I've grown tired of Hollywood's all-action idiot-plot movies and I've searched for the Top Hit foreign films. My only wish is that the producer would've invested a bit more money and offer an English-voice-over version (I knew it was subtitled.). My "Tomboy" granddaughter is a bit too young to keep up with the subtitles, but her sister reads them to her. They were a bit surprised to see the foreign acceptance of how much skin is shown (e.g., a bathtub scene--very relevant to the story) and realize little girls don't necessarily have to wear shirts all the time--an American sexist bigotry. But they liked the story. The ending disappointed them, but that's the way life is sometimes.
The purpose of the bathtub scene was to "surprisingly" reveal that the main character was actually a girl. BUT with a name like "Tomboy," that was already given away. If people don't know the meaning of the word, the surprise and earlier scenes would've been more relevant.
