Angel - Customer Review
I could barely sit through this movie. Not only did I find it dull, but I detested two of the main characters for their bratty ego-centrism. By the time we got to the third daughter's story (the only daughter I liked), I was fed up with the movie.


Kate - Customer Review
Very well done indie with an amazing performance by Nicola Bartlett as the matriarch. Hopefully, this film gets the exposure it deserves.


Jeff in Seattle - Customer Review
Little Sparrows is a nice film about a woman suffering from a lethal illness having her last intimate converstion with each of her three daughers. Even though the film ends with her passing, the audience would feel some comfort. All three of her daughters would feel more confident in their future knowing they could move on with their lives.

FRAULEIN
Directed by Andrea Staka
YEAR 5 FILM 8
Ruza left Belgrade more than 25 years ago to seek a new life in Zurich. Now in her fifties, she has completely detached herself from the past. She owns a cafeteria and maintains an orderly, joyless existence. Mila, a waitress there, is a good-humored Croatian woman who also emigrated decades ago, but, unlike Ruza, she dreams of returning to a house on the Croatian coast. Both of them receive a jolt when Ana, a young, itinerant woman who has fled Sarajevo, breezes into the cafeteria looking for work. Ruza hires her but is annoyed by Ana's impulsive and spirited efforts to inject life into the cafeteria. Gradually the acrimony will dissipate, as Ana, who hides a tragic secret under her passionate spirit, begins to thaw Ruza's chill, and their relationship will change both women in ways they never anticipated.
