Recommended for Age 6+ The parents of two sisters, age 8 and 4, each have to leave town for work. The rambunctious, highly imaginative girls are stuck with their strict Aunt Linda who is unaccustomed to children. Linda is trying to woo a gentleman she hopes to marry, and the girls manure collecting activities stink up the romance. The sisters and their aunt are at crossed purposes until mischievous Grandpa and some waterballoons save the day. WATERBOMB FOR THE FAT TOMCAT is a sweet comedy set in a small Latvian village, with hilarious modern predicaments and insights. VARIS BRASLA (b. 1939) graduated in film directing from the Leningrad Theatre, Music and Cinematography Institute in 1962. Preceded by the short: BELOVED DADDY USA / Kristina Gazizova A crayon-drawn sing-a-long about a Russian child’s playful adventures with Papa.
