Emma's shadow

Søren Kragh-Jacobsen, Denmark, 1988

99 min.DK/FeatureChildren's films

Another Søren Kragh-Jacobsen exploration of the hearts and minds of childhood and youth: Emma, age 12, lives in an affluent 1930s home with parents too busy to pay her the attention she craves. So why not fake a grand-style for-real kidnapping of herself? While off on her own, Emma makes friends with a Swedish sewer-worker. Together, they get into lots of trouble. Top Danish awards for Year's Best Film.
