Movie Info

In the summer of 1981 a 10-year old girl is left behind with an aunt when the rest of her family goes to Africa as aid workers. The aunt, soon courted by a man, leaves the girl with the promise to return "in just a few days". The girl doesn't tell anyone that she is now completely abandoned and the summer passes by. With sharpening senses she gradually discovers the often absurd and careless adult world.-- (C) Olive Films

Audience Reviews for The Girl (Flickan)

  • Aug 31, 2010
    Beautifully filmed, if thematically obvious, tale of a 9 year old girl who is left behind with her aunt when her family goes to Africa on a mission trip. But with her aunt runs off with a man she finds herself alone, forced to provide for herself, navigating what in many ways will be the last true summer of her childhood. It's never in question where the film is going, but director Frederik Edfeldt conveys the themes with such grace and often breathtaking beauty that it coalesces into a vibrant and lovely whole.
