On the Sly (U)
Olivier Ringer, 77mins. Starring: Wynona Ringer, Olivier Ringer, Macha Ringer
On the Sly is a small-scale, intimate tale about a lonely six-year-old child. Hardly noticed by her hard-working parents, Cathy (Wynona Ringer) disappears into the woods – and waits to see how soon they will notice.
There is next to no dialogue. Instead, Cathy narrates her own adventures in a naive but perceptive voiceover.
Whatever else, this is the antithesis to the brash, effect-driven 3D movies that tend to be released in time for half-term. For parents looking for a soulful, slow-burning children's movie, this could be just the answer.
