(Switzerland/Germany, 2006, 122 minutes)

A 12-year-old piano-playing prodigy realises that his gifts are more of a curse than they seem. Amiable but shapeless comedy-melodrama that would make an ideal kids’ movie if it weren’t so dullishly handled and haphazardly plotted, with as many as three different plot strands crowding each other out.
