Slap bang in the middle of Germany, Bollersdorf is a completely average town – and proud of it. They will do all they can to stay that way and if that means putting all the grandparents into an old people’s home to keep to the statistical average, then that’s what they do.
Step up The Coati Gang! These feisty children (together with their lovable pet coatimundi, Fiddlesticks) are determined to rescue their fun-loving grandparents and blast the notion of being average sky-high by setting a new world record for something. For anything! But what exactly? And how?
This live action romp is a fun-filled homage to total chaos, blending the madcap zaniness of Laurel and Hardy, the authority-defying stance (and hairstyle) of Pippi Longstocking, and the absolute mayhem of a Michael Bay movie. Just don’t try any of this at home!
Cinemagic's 'CineSeekers Film Club' is a monthly film event for young people. Programmed by Cinemagic and based in QFT, the club’s ethos is to promote and celebrate a diverse and varied range of international children’s films. By providing our young audience with a regular outlet for world cinema, our aim is to develop and nurture a broader appreciation, understanding and love of film; as well as celebrating the stories, peoples and cultures from around the globe.
Fiddlesticks will be available to watch in the UK and Ireland here from 11am on Fri 5 June for two days only. Free to watch, no subscription necessary. Note that we'll be showing the original German version with English subtitles.
