Basically a copy of "The Window" (1949)
27 July 2001 | by (Wyoming) – See all my reviews

This foreign remake (although it retains the novel's original title) is not as suspenseful or as well made as "The Window" but still moves moderately well and keeps your interest.

Basic plot: A boy noted for lying sees a murder and nobody believes him except, of course, the killer.

Jonno is not bad considering his age, but the villain is not too believable. The rest of the cast is mediocre to downright blah!

The chase scene over the clay tile rooftops to the ruined fort is probably the best scene of the film.

My copy of this movie is on 16mm film and has faded to red. Also my projector is mono sound only. In view of these restrictions, I may be missing some of the character of this film.

I've never seen this movie on video but it claims to have been aired in the U.S.(Probably some TV station has an old print they use for filler). It may be difficult to find a copy.
