Our take

Before her award-winner Alcarràs, Carla Simón wowed audiences with this poignant, autobiographical look at the world through the eyes of a child. Featuring some astonishing child performances, the film unspools with the freshness of real life, in all its messiness, pain, and luminescent beauty.
