This challenging and profound film may at first confuse viewers expecting a wordless film. The German/Czech production uses the pretence of speech, with actors speaking in a deliberately nonsensical language. The effect of this is to estrange the viewer from the words spoken, allowing us to focus more upon what we think is being said and its context to the visual sequence. This technique puts us in the position of the little boy who is lost in a department store. A mother, shopping for toys with her daughter, tries to help him. Guessing that he does not speak the language, she gestures with toy vehicles to work out where he has come from. The boy grabs a plastic tub and fills it with miniature figures, to represent a crowded boat of migrants seeking asylum on the shores of Europe. He tips the boat on to the floor, highlighting the devastating outcome of the journey. This powerful film is a challenging, complex, highly affecting, but very powerful tool to stimulate discussion with an older set of children. The use of the nonsensical language can also be used to consider the role of language as part of cultural identities.
