Quotes

Harry Garland: [after Mandy comes in from outside, crying] What happened, did the dog bite her or something?
Christine Garland: [concerned] I don't know. Something frightened her. She couldn't tell me what. Harry, I can't go on like this. It was all right when she was a baby, but now, you never know, I don't know whether she's being naughty and playing me up or whether there's something really the matter.
[sternly]
Christine Garland: There's just no contact.
[desperately]
Christine Garland: There must be something we can do?

Wow... what a great movie!!
17 May 2008 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I'm really a movie fan. Watch as much movies as I can. Though I'm never really interested in movies from the 50's. But this movie turned that all around. "Mandy" is a great movie that is a must see! Mandy Miller has a stunning role and plays it really great! The whole story line in this movie is unique, still to this day. It's a movie like I've not seen before. Especially because the movie is from way back, it's great to see that there were already great minds behind this movie. And I can't say it enough, the role that Mandy Miller plays is stunning!

If you have the opportunity to watch this movie, watch it! I give it a big 10 out of 10.
