Nicely made, kind of a fairy-tale. Rich in colours and landscape poetry. It takes quite a while to get to know the characters and to understand their relationships to each other. Strange thing: Adults believe to have magical powers, but more so do the children. And they have it, in a way.

I always end up being puzzled and confused, when watching movies from the Baltic states. There's something about them, weird fairy-tales between the spheres of reality, poetry and comic nonsense.
