MIJN BIJZONDER RARE WEEK MET TESS | MY EXTRAORDINARY SUMMER WITH TESS

NL/DE 2019. D: Steven Wouterlood. A: Laura van Dijk. 82 min. Feature. Dutch OV with Eng. ST. and German voice-over. No age restriction. Recommended from age 9

On a family holiday on a Dutch island, the pondering ten-year-old Sam meets Tess, a fun-loving, fascinating and somehow strange girl who lives with her mother. Tess has a crazy plan that Sam is supposed to help her with: she wants to get to know her father, who is on holiday on the island and doesn’t know anything about his daughter. In the original story, the protagonists experience a summer adventure full of charm, heart and humour. Light-footed and profound at the same time, the film explores universal questions about family and friendship. (HA)
