A very touching story
16 August 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This film is a very touching story, told the point of view of an 8 year old boy whose father has returned to the family after World War 2. The boy has never met him, being born just after his father left. His mother has been waiting hopefully for the father's return.

But the reconciliation brings more tensions to their lives. The boy especially is confused, jealous, unhappy and troubled by the new situation. The film slowly and gently explores these developments and their resolution.

The color in the copy I watched was badly degraded, and this film really deserves restoration.
