For media educator

Pelle Hermanni film starts from the fascinating world of the circus, but the search for one’s father transports the traditional story to the nostalgic milieu of a small town. Pelle Hermanni has no scary scenes which proceed safely and calmly. Instead, due to misunderstandings, the elderly, thoughtful, and calm clown has to go through the feelings of being bored and rejected before everything ends happily and for the best.

Hermanni hasn’t seen his father for years, and at some point, he is also unsure if his father still loves and cares. The flaxen-headed children of competing magicians, Roni and Mona appear as lively and competent child characters in the film. Children set an example for adults in reasonable behavior and settling disputes. (Source: Media-avain)
