the Crumbs - it's hard to be 11 years old

Michael Asmussen, Denmark, 2022

84 min.DK/FeatureChildren's films

The family has to get to know each other, so Crumb suggests a screen-free week so he doesn't have to be teased at school for his old mobil phone. But Stine is furious, Mom thinks it makes sense and Dad comes with a box with his childhood books, the ‘Kim books’ a toy train and detective set. For now the family should not be bored!! Crumb swallows the books raw, and starts, like Kim, a detective agency with his friend Tom. When the master thieves Tina and Jeff show up with the stolen diamond from the National Museum, Crumb decides to solve the big diamond theft. But it is not as easy as in the Kim books, because it is difficult to be 11 years old when you also want to win Yrsa's heart.
