The Zellner brothers manage to coexist (rather than mix) in the lonesome terrarium of the Dardenne, Kelly Reichardt, and the Grimm brothers, in a savage and primary way (a girl is the non-ethereal star). Hyper-realism shaped as a kidnapped “fairy tale”: that’s how the Zellner bring narrative to their entomology of the weak and disturbed (the “and” usually rules here). Kid-Thing tightens the potentially insane mind of a 10 year-old girl as she wanders through the woods “bleaking” everything after school is out for the summer. Until once upon a time there was a hole in the woods from which you could hear a female voice trying to get out of there (like Timmy O’Toole). The girl magically goes back on her footsteps every day and brings food, doubts, needs, walkie-talkies, and extra small existentialisms. It’s no coincidence that her dad reads to her “How to Become a Better Person?” she (funny, violent, unique, genuine, melancholic, and disturbing just like the film) answers: “And how would they know?”.
