Life According to Nino (Het leven volgens Nino) / Perfect Match. Out-of-Competition Program
Год: 2014
77 min.

8-year-old Nino and his older brother Lucas have an ideal family: the parents who "fell in love with each other 100 years ago" never quarrel, but only dance merrily and make french fries if mom forgot to turn off the oven with the pie. The only thing that upsets Nino a little is that he asked for a dog for his birthday, but gets a rabbit. However, after the sudden death of his mother, the boy understands that there are more serious tragedies in life. Due to psychological trauma, Nino does not go to school for a year, and his rabbit finds the gift of speech, assuring that he can be both a dog and a cat. After Nino's older brother almost dies, the father and sons have to pull themselves together and prove that they are a real family.
