Rural Estonia looks gorgeous in this well-intentioned hokum (2011) about an adorable eight-year-old girl and her negligent parents. Her father is a small-town grave digger constantly leaving home in search of work; her mother is a hard-partying alcoholic. With the help of a social worker and a compassionate female pastor, the girl comes to escape her parents’ bad influence. Writer-director Katrin Laur wants to tell an uplifting story about the good work performed by church and state in the lives of children; unfortunately she isn’t interesting enough as a storyteller to convey her sentiments persuasively. To make matters more embarrassing, the little girl playing the lead, Kertu-Killu Grenman, seems unable to grasp the demands of her difficult role. In subtitled Estonian, Finnish, and Russian.
