Bavarian Film Award, "Best Cinema Film" at the Goldener Spatz and nomination for the German Film Award: The "stylistically confident and dense youth film is a masterpiece" (AZ München). Protagonist Viktor manages to disclose the secret of the death of his great cousin and the stuffed crocodiles with empty eye sockets. The film draws its suspense not least from Zerletts music: he composed eerie motifs as if for an adul thriller and exhausted all possibilities without overstepping the limits normally set by a children's film. In addition, he wrote catchy but morbid children's melodies, with the title song sung by his daughter Jana. The score was created in collaboration with Christoph Zirngibl and was recorded by the Babelsberg Film Orchestra.
