The pace is slow but there is a sparkle of awesomeness from the two main child actors. The storyline isn't overly complex either – Frida is dealing with grief naturally, jealousy of her new step-sister and the slower pace away from Barcelona.
The story is based on the director, Carla Simon Pipo's autobiography. The tension slowly creeps up on you and then it's all over in a burst. This film might be underwhelming for some viewers to enjoy but it provides an evocative depiction of childhood. It won Best First Feature at a recent Berlinale.
