Definitely a story and a warning for today's audience. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/27/23 Full Review Audience Member This is a sad but interesting story, and the little girl who plays the main character is a delight to watch. It's especially nice if you understand spoken German. (Plus there are short scenes where Swiss German and French are spoken.)
