Cineuropa: Amalie Næsby Fick’s Little Allan – The Human Antenna in…
By Amalie Næsby Fick
Official Selection at Stuttgart Festival of Animated film 2022
On an otherwise lonely summer vacation, the introverted Little Allan (11) is talked into acting as a human antenna for his old UFO-obsessed neighbor who thinks a huge invasion fleet from the outer space is on its way. But what they find is not exactly a huge invasion fleet. When the rickety antenna construction collapses, Little Allan is only barely saved by the alien girl Britney, who is doing a school project about the primitive human race.
Now Little Allan has to help her get home, while she becomes fascinated with this tiny example of the human species: Why does this boy keep saying that he is fine, even though his parents just got divorced, and he’s clearly not? Is that how all Little humans work?
