Inhalt

Sergeant Pepper

Felix’s parents are worried. He is six years old and instead of playing with other kids, he hides in a tiger costume all day, invites no one but a turtle to his birthday party, insists that his stuffed animals are talking to him and has not a single human friend to speak of – nor does he want one.

But everything changes the day Sergeant Pepper enters Felix’s life. After discovering what seems to be a lost little dog hiding in the backyard, Felix soon learns that there is much more to this cute canine than meets the eye. Pepper has inherited a fortune from his old master, and he has a very special gift: he can talk to children who believe in miracles. Unfortunately, the master’s heirs would kill to get their hands on Pepper’s house and Pepper is in dire need of some human help. As Felix finds out what it’s like to have a real friend, he gets ready to face the world on its own terms, bravely teaming up with his big sister for an adventurous journey to save the life of his new pal.
After winning international recognition with Mostly Martha (Bella Martha, 2001), a hit in European theaters and one of the most successful German films ever in the U.S., director Sandra Nettelbeck reveals an equal skill in the family genre and a sure hand with young actors in this delightful feature.
