Comments:
"The best child actor is a boy who impressed us with so much feeling and his performance as an actor. We appraise how he dealt with his incontinence in the film and we emphasized a lot with the figure."
(Explanation of the European Children’s Jury at the Schlingel Festival in Chemnitz/Germany, 2012).

"The whole story is realistic, sensitive, not without conflicts but still with a lot of hope. This is great entertainment because it is human and humorous." (Explanation of the Professional's Jury at the Schlingel Festival in Chemnitz/Germany, 2012).
