Hugo and Josephine

Sat 1 Feb 2014

The lonely daughter of a rural pastor makes friends with a wild boy who lives in the woods. The mysterious giant who tends the garden seems sinister, but is really a big teddy bear. The darkness of the world beyond childhood lingers at the edge of the frame, but never intrudes. Kjell Grede delivers a Swedish summer classic, blonde and gorgeous and heart-breakingly innocent. A pure pleasure.
