Superb Fantasy
16 February 2009 | by bigdave11See all my reviews

I have just seen this new German Movie at the Berlin Film Festival where it premiered. I went along more in hope than expectation as it was billed as a children's film. The audience was made up primarily of pre-teen school groups. They became totally engrossed in the story of a boy who is left in the not so tender care of a new housekeeper while his father travels to America on business. He is left a copy of 'Arabian Knights' in which he becomes engrossed and every night he dreams that he is taking part in the adventures. People he knows in real life appear in his dreams. The dream sequences look to have been filmed in Morocco (I could be wrong!) The movie succeeds on all levels and had the young audience cheering the hero and booing the villain - almost like a pantomime. The effects are excellent and the charismatic young lead actor clearly has a future in movies. Recommended for the young and young at heart!
