Martin Widmark’s popular series of books about Nelly Rapp has found its way to the movies for the second time. Driven by a longing to be with her mother, Nelly Rapp proves how important it often is to summon the courage to go one’s own way.
Now that Nelly Rapp has uncovered her family’s secret and has become an intrepid monster agent who ensures the peaceful coexistence of humans, zombies, vampires, and other monsters, her latest adventure takes her in search of the mysterious mirror of death. This search leads Nelly, with her new half-brother in tow, deep into the dreaded dark forest — to the place where her mother once disappeared without a trace.
This film is screened in original version with German voice-over.
Recommended for ages 8 and up.
