Svend Wam in Lakki: The Boy Who Could Fly

Lakki: The Boy Who Could Fly

1992 UR

Gritty reality combines with flights of fancy in this lyrical Norwegian film about an angel-faced teen who looks to the streets for shelter when his parents ignore him and trouble finds him at school. Dreaming of escape, 14-year-old Lakki (Anders Borchgrevink) begins sprouting feathers on his back. But is the transformation real, or is it imagined? And does it even matter in the nightmare urban landscape that defines Lakki's existence?
