Little Allan – The Human Antenna

85 min.DK/FeatureChildren's films

During a lonely summer vacation, the introverted Little Allan, 11, is talked into acting as a human antenna for his old, UFO obsessed neighbour. An invasion fleet is coming, and apparently the only way to save Earth is by communicating through Little Allan’s brainwaves. But what they find is not exactly an invasion fleet. When the rickety antenna construction collapses, Little Allan is only barely saved by the alien girl, Britney, who is doing a school project about the primitive human race. Now Little Allan has to help her get home, while she becomes fascinated with this little specimen of the human species: Why does this boy keep saying that he is fine, even though his parents just got divorced, and he’s clearly not? Is that how all little humans work?
