A pure, beautiful film about childhood
1 July 2000 | by See all my reviews

A movie about children and their simple expectations. A pure, ingenious film, that should be viewed by everyone who wishes to go back to those wonderful early years. In the beginning of his career, Oliveira shows an intelligent, sensitive, real world history in a true cinema pearl.
