I am William Jeg er William

Jonas Elmer / Denmark / 2017 / 83 min / Slovene subtitles, Danish / 8+

A typically Danish children’s film, that’s both funny and serious, and has a real sparkle in its eye.

story
When his dad dies, William has to move in with his uncle. The uncle is a small-time crook, and whenever he ends up in a scrape, William is the one who has to help him get him out of it. As if he doesn’t have enough problems himself. Some bullies at his new school are trying to extort money from him using threats of violence, but he’s not without the support and courage of his new friend Viola.

reviews
"From a shortlist of very strong contenders, the jury particularly liked this entertaining, unsentimental and at times very funny tale of a character starting out not at all tough or brave and overcoming their insecurities and feelings of isolation to find their place in the world. With an engaging narrative, some terrific visual flashes and an outstanding central performance by Alexander Magnusson, the European Children’s Film Association Award goes to I am William."
- ECFA-Jury at BUFF Malmö 2018

"Perky, sparky and hugely enjoyable, this is a feel-good film in which everyone learns a thing or two about themselves. "
- Discovery Film Festival, Scotland, 2018
