In the new film version of Erich Kaestner′s children′s book of the same name, Annaluise isn′t selling matches this time to help Anton earn some money, but is instead singing in Munich′s town center while her parents are at the opera. Annaluise learnt the songs from her French aupair Laurence whom the eternally absent parents thought was the ideal chaperone for Annaluise.
