Movie Description

Suzie in the garden

| SYNOPSIS
Suzie is a little girl who goes with her mother and dad to an allotment outside the city. One day she meets a black dog and discovers a mysterious garden. Who is it that lives there? Suzie is a little afraid. But what to do when you are afraid of someone, but you find their key on the path?

 

DIRECTOR’S STATEMENT
I see Suzie in the Garden as a dialogue with childhood. I tried to enter into the thinking of the little girl, to understand her imagination, fears and charming childish self-centeredness. I tried to create a film that would speak a language understandable to children and at the same time be able to evoke memories of the moments and situations we experienced as a child. Lucie Sunková
