first, a homage of childhood in the frame of contemporary family crisis. the second, nice way for remind a fascinating character. sure, not high expectations. but a nice result. because it has the science to use, in decent manner, old themes in refreshing way. the imaginary friend, the adventure, the clash between different visions, the importance of fundamental values, the success and the generosity. short, one of many German children comedy. with same form of charm and with the same smart recipe. and, sure, with the status of good lesson about important things. so, a comedy for children. not extraordinary . but really lovely entertainment.
