Unappreciated in its time, and even somewhat now, Ladybug Ladybug is a chilling and quite strange tale. This film has an odd atmosphere which makes it not only unique but compelling. Performances are all excellent, especially the children, some of which border on superb.
Hirschfield's cinematography is exquisite, but it sometimes overpowers the modesty of the screenplay and the children's performances. All in all a very interesting document from the cold war at its hottest.
