The pint-sized heroine's defiant adherence to humanitarian values renders her more a stand-in for arthouse viewers' right-on worldview than a real child in a specific dramatic situation.

Offering nothing more probing than a child's eye view of this "fanatical, fratricidal war", it depresses where it should devastate; an honorable effort that ultimately fails to ignite.

While unsubtle, this German-Austrian drama about the use of child soldiers is worth seeing for a remarkable performance by its 10-year-old lead actress.
