Snoopers turns out to be SUPER!
I admit I bought this DVD hoping to be as complete as possible in viewing all the work of one of my favourite actors, Olivia Hallinan. The film had the initial appearance of an over-dubbed German Children's programme. (It's original title was "Das sprechende Grab") I expected this mini Miss Hallinan to be good, as her performances I've seen so far have been that and more. What I didn't expect was her to be Excellent!
It only took 5 minutes to see that plucky spirit that I have become a fan of shine through. I found myself slipping into the normal comfort/sated feeling I get from watching her performance, just as if I was watching "Lark Rise to Candleford" as I have so many times before.
The film itself proved to be adequately exciting with a good solid plot/mystery behind it. If you are in the mood for a 'kid movie' with good child actors, there are lots out there to see, if you want to see a movie with a performance well beyond the that of a 9 year old, watch this and see what a natural born actress is like!
