My Life As A Dog


The film that put Miramax schmaltz merchant Lasse Hallström (Chocolat) on the map, this coming-of-age tale shows all the Swedish director's trademarks: peculiar protagonist, small-town life and thorny themes made digestible. Impish 12-year-old Ingemar (Anton Glanzelius) is farmed out to relatives by his depressed mother. Cue jolly japes with his uncle and sparring sessions with the local tomboy. Hallström is a sensitive purveyor of pre-teen angst, but you'll need a sweet tooth to consume.
