This a film for the young at heart - or the little ones, of course!
Actually it's a children's film. But it's definitely more than that. It's warm, extremely well written - well, like the books it's based upon - superbly directed and offers excellent actors in excellent performances.
Christine Urspruch masters the title role of the droll goblin-like creature with style. She "is" the Sams. Ulrich Noethen as her "pappa" gives a brilliant performance throughout the whole film but especially so in the dancing scene in the restaurant. I laughed tears and admired the choreography. Armin Rohde and Eva Mattes are terrific in the main supporting roles. Watching them eating sausages on an oversized table is just hilarious.
But all this doesn't work to perfection without a perfect script. And this one is straight perfect. At last there we have the proof that good children's films can be made in Germany. It happens only once in a while, but at least it happens. This time it did!
I hope Das Sams II will be as pleasant to watch as this one. With the same team they can't fail! And I love to laugh!
