Very adorable although there is some mild profanity. This short film is about a little boy who dreams of having a dog so he has a little paper bag with a face drawn on it attached to a string that he drags around and pretends is a dog. He then catches a bird and hides it under his hat. The little boy's imagination is adorable, fun and entertaining to watch. What I didn't like about this film is that the word "damn" is used a few times. Other than that, it's fun and imaginative and at the end, the little boy talks to the camera as if we were in the movie the entire time with him. The cinematography is nicely done, the camera work is smooth and the picture is clear and smooth the entire time. The sound was crisp and clear and easy to hear as well. The film flows well. It's easy to understand and follow along with and, although it is in German with English subtitles, they don't move too fast. Recommended for ages 10-15 and give it 4 out of 5 stars.

Five-year-old Willi has a dog, a very special one. But because some grown-ups don't seem to understand this, Schnuffi is thrown away. Willi knows: with fantasy everything is possible! And suddenly he has a sparkly new idea.
