We really liked this movie too; in fact, I'd like to see it again.

[spoiler]I particularly liked that it is from the point of view of the kid - in the same manner as "To Kill a Mockingbird".[/spoiler]

IMDB: O Ano em Que Meus Pais Saíram de Férias

84% on the Tomatometer, but don't bother trying to look at the Rotten Tomatoes entry for this movie unless you disable javascript. There is an ad that refuses to disappear... but just in case you want to try: http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/1000896 ... _vacation/
