Not Just for Children
9 April 2002 | by Mark-129See all my reviews

Despite being filmed on a small budget, "Anna to the Infinite Power" is a wonder. Produced, written and performed by a talented cast of newcomers and veteran actors attracted to the story of a young girl, a genius, has to face the truth of her origins and forge her own identity and place in the world. A terific and timely film, made with both love and insight.
