Yes, the magic world of childhood's imagination, in all its solemnity
30 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yes, I remember seeing it a long time ago and still have in my mind that sunflower "walking" by an open window, still hear the voices with all that intensity of childhood in questions and answers... The camera seems at times to be a partner in the children's games, and to invite us to participate. I also enjoyed the absence of moralizing comments be they verbal or visual. You know it's a great movie when it stays with you for years! We need these movies out there, for others to enjoy and discover. There are a few moments that breathe similar air in "The Steamroller and the Violin" - Andrei Tarkovsky's first movie ( you can find it on Netflix). Any other movies that would dwell in the same area?

I am an optimist, we'll find a DVD copy of it, eventually!
