I was raised in the US but I saw this movie just once when I was 7 years old on Canadian TV. I have never seen this movie on American television although I believe it is a masterpiece. It made such an impact on me that I've never forgotten it. I even give it some credit for shaping my empathy and compassion. I just found out the name of the film today, after 35 years of wondering and searching(thanks Boo). One commenter wondered if this movie was suitable for children. Not only is this movie suitable for children, it should be mandatory in order to counter balance all the other junk that they are targeted for and exposed to today. This is a film that should be shown on TV every holiday season. I think the older we get, we tend to forget how sharp and comprehensive we actually were as children. Even at seven years old, I understood the beauty of this film.
