This is a feel good film.
30 August 2003 | by (Maui, Hawaii) – See all my reviews

I have seen this film only a few times. The first time I turned it on after it had begun. The second time and all the times after, I looked for it. 1950's to the max. The conflict of the old and new ways, father and son. It is all here and told in a clear sweet story.
