Award Winning Portuguese Film: Sadness and Joy in the Life of Giraffes
Sadness and Joy in the Life of Giraffes is a unique and entertaining film featuring a tall 10 year old girl and her imaginary teddy bear friend.
This tall girl was given the nickname ‘Giraffe’ by her mother, who has passed away.
She is smart, wise and capable, which make this tall child appear to be older than she actually is.
Her companion, who absolutely is not real, is a foul-mouthed man in a teddy bear suit.
Their adventure is entertaining and she is a delight to get to know.
