GOING TO SCHOOL / VILLADS AUS VALBY / VILLADS FRA VALBY

DK 2015, D: Frederik Nørgaard, 76 Min.
Fiction, OV with Eng. ST,
with German voice-over, released for 6+, recommended for 6+

Somehow Villads had imagined his first day at school rather differently. Sitting still and following annoying rules is not his thing. Instead, the six-year-old prefers flying through the town as “Super-Villads”, taking underwater photographs of fish and playing in the garden with his best friend Frida. He creates his own worlds: His imagination can be contagious to some and absolutely maddening to others. The camera portrays Villads’ life calmly and authentically, telling the story from his point of view (which may sometimes be upside down) with accompanying feel-good music. GOING TO SCHOOL is a film that even adults can learn from while still enjoying themselves.
