3sat: “By the way, a star is born here.”

Artechock Munich: “Berliner Schule für Kinder? That should go? I promise and ask anyone who has doubts to give it a try; Parents with their children, grandchildren with their grandparents or best of all together. You’ll see that it’s alright, especially with such a great actress as Lisa Moell. “

Berlin Film Festival: “… Now, with” Queen of Niendorf “, she presents a charming, touching and warm-hearted film that has the potential to thrill many children and adults in the movie theaters. (…) “Queen of Niendorf” is a sensitive and calmly staged story of a strong girl, of true friendship and, despite serious moments yet wild-idyllic childhood summer in the country. “

dradio Kakadu: “A small film that is quite big on the whole.”

epd Film: “Thus rain showers become an immediate experience of nature and the summer nights a laconic staged idyll, accompanied by songs between lightness and heaviness. Lisa Moell plays Lea, as she slides stoically and without an obvious emotional emotion through the summer. Film & TV cameraman “Joya Thomes Königin von Niendorf is a children’s film for children and adults alike, who takes us to rural Brandenburg and the world of ten-year-old Leah. A remarkable achievement by actress Lisa Moell, which captivates audiences. “

Film Rezensionen: “Enthralling children’s film about a very special summer.”

Filmdienst: “The young filmmaker Joya Thome has financed her narrowly budgeted feature film debut via crowdfunding, because the time-consuming process by the funding agencies would have damaged not least the fascinating leading actress Lisa Moell by mere aging. A brave and very smart decision, because Moell’s almost stoic game and its deeply melancholic appearance are the capital on which the film can build. Because of her very own, no longer childlike sincerity, one would like to believe that Lea does not tell the boys what she actually observed in the basement of the firefighter … “

FilmFestSpecial: “The strength of the film is that it keeps the children in the picture, lets them play and does not make them recite sentences.”

HR2: “My personal favorite is the debut film by Joya Thome. A wonderfully sensitive film. “

Kinderfilmblog: “The most beautiful, best German children’s film in a long time.”

Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung: “The great children’s film” Queen of Niendorf “enchanted as a kind of summer fairy tale of a somehow fallen out of time country idyll, in which a coming-of-age story about the timid transition from childhood to youth.”

SR1 movie tip: “The whole thing is really great played, entertaining but in between quite serious. I’m sure adults will love this movie as well. “

Süddeutsche Zeitung: “Queen of Niendorf” is not just a movie for children. Thome also meets adults who remember tree house adventures and Chupa Chups – and have not forgotten that the world was once too small for their desires. “

Tagesschau24: “The Queen of Niendorf is not only worth seeing for children, but also for adults who are inspired by a childhood in the countryside.”

Tip Berlin: “This finely delineated field of tension makes the film extremely well worth seeing for adults. Children, however, enjoy the adventures of a rural youth. “

Welt am Sonntag Kompakt: “The Queen of Niendorf also enchants the adult audience.”
