Beautiful, heart warming and lovely
27 March 2012 | by See all my reviews

Wow, what a deeply beautiful movie! It really spoke to my heart, I loved how moving and real the characters portrayed such wildly deep emotions. It wasn't "flat" with "psycho-babble", that's crazy! This was a story of a man wrongly accused who paid his debt to society with a longing in his heart for his child, I don't think this kind of raw emotion comes from male characters like this anymore. This is worth seeing if you ever question how far one will go for love, and the power of will, determination and the legacy we are for our parents and the future we owe it to make for ourselves. I can't believe this movie debuted in 1934, all the actors are genuine, raw, beautiful, true and lovely. The costumes, sets, are simple enough so the story shines through.
