A truly excellent film.
14 April 2002 | by (sweden) – See all my reviews

This film is about homeless children.

In the main titles it's something like this: "This film is based on taped histories by the children in the film and their friends". Arne Sucksdorff is one of the greatest and most famous directors here in Sweden. He does documentary films. I have seen two films that he has done: This and "The great adventure". "The great adventure" is great but the child-actors is not so good in that film but in this it was much difrent. Maybe because they act so natural.

This is a film that perfectly shows their joy in the hopeless situation. It's very frightening and it will make you think deep. The children still has the hope but the problems goes on and on. You get very close to the four main children. Technical this film is perfect, the cinematography, editing and of course the direction. And let's not forget how beautiful this film is. A masterpiece that I highly recommend to watch. It's hard to rate this kind of films but it deserves the highest rating on any level.
