Little big sister

Jesper W. Nielsen, Denmark, 1998

100 min.DK/FeatureChildren's films

This is an adventure for children and adults in a style all of its own. Packed with drama, and humour, too. Ida is only ten, but her life is so complicated that it should almost be forbidden. Specially when her dad leaves her mum, who takes to the bottle and ends up on the verge of suicide. The lone mother and her two children - Ida and Tubby, her five-year-old brother - only just manage to muddle along. And when their troubles are over, Ida is thrown into her first encounter with the tribulations of love.

Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution, og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med. Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution, foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste.
