Child actor Mads Bugge Andersen carries this children's film in his role as young Buster, put-upon by bullies at school and elsewhere, and forced to improve his lot through a vivid imagination and some ingenuity. Originally a television series in six episodes changed to a feature-length format, Buster's adventures are forcibly told in six sequences. In one of these sequences he develops a giant crush on a charming girl and summons all his courage to approach her. In another, his sister is featured and their relationship strained when Buster tries to cheer her up the wrong way. While these stock vignettes are decidedly for the younger set, their clichés are more easily ignored because of Buster's unique character.
