Dakota's character is too precocious and serious for her own good, while her new babysitter is just the opposite, and in the end each will learn from the other. The movie rests heavily on the good actresses.

A playful adaptation of Little Red Riding Hood. Production values are on the low side and there are no subtitles, but Yana's bubbly performance and huge smile, together with good music more than compensate.

A man and a prepubescent girl fall in love in Italy of the World War I era. The film is famous for its unflinching treatment of the controversial subject, and for showing Katya body. A decent story, but poor execution.

A lovely view on Swedish life through eyes of a child some hundred years ago, based on Astrid Lindgren's Madicken books. Jonna is likable and natural as Madicken, handling a range of emotions with ease.
