Oskar und die Dame in Rosa ( Visual )
4 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in German and Undetermined and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Die Dame in Rosa" stolpert in einem Hospital im wahrsten Sinne über den schwer kranken zehnjährigen Oskar. Mit ihrer energischen Art bringt sie den verschlossenen Jungen zum Lachen. Fortan will Oskar nur noch mit ihr reden. Mit einem Trick erfüllt der Doktor seinen grossen Wunsch: Er engagiert Rose kurzerhand als Pizzalieferantin für die Klinik mit Sonderauftrag "Oskar". Täglich besucht sie nun den Jungen und zwischen beiden entwickelt sich eine tiefe Freundschaft. Um Oskar auf andere Gedanken zu bringen, schlägt sie ihm ein Spiel vor: Er soll sich vorstellen, dass er an jedem einzelnen Tag soviel erlebt wie andere in zehn Jahren. Dank Roses Hilfe erobert sich Oskar in den nächsten zwölf Tagen sein Leben zurück. Mit der gleichaltrigen Peggy Blue erlebt er die erste Liebe, er wird reifer und weise. Noch ahnt Rose nicht, in welchem Masse die Begegnung mit Oskar auch ihr eigenes Leben beeinflussen wird. (Quelle: cede.ch)

Mein Leben in Rosarot es ist nicht leicht, ein Mädchen zu sein ( Visual )
11 editions published between 1997 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Mein Leben in Rosarot" gehört zu den schönsten Filmen, die man als Liebhaber französischer Dramen zu sehen bekommen kann. Die Geschichte des siebenjährigen Jungen Ludovic, der sich zum Mädchen bestimmt fühlt, wird mit so außergewöhnlicher Sensibilität erzählt, wie man sie sich nur wünschen kann. Die Welt aus den Augen des Kindes öffnet sich hier auch für jeden Erwachsenen. Selbst wenn bisweilen der gewollte Kitsch ein klein wenig nerven kann, so knackt die leichte Überzogenheit doch wirklich auch das noch so verschlossenste Herz, zumal Georges du Fresne als Ludovic in Mädchenkleidern einfach herzzerreißend süß aussieht und ganz nebenbei eine hervorragende schauspielerische Leistung hinlegt. Kein Film macht es einem leichter, sich in die Kindheit zurück zu versetzen, was natürlich auch an den bitter bis hilflos gestalteten Elternfiguren liegen mag, die einem, wie damals schon, spießig und schrecklich grausam vorkommen.
