Jewish boy spends wartime with elderly couple in coutryside France
Cute. Tender and somewhat kitch. A showcase for 72 years old Michel Simon, an important Swiss actor of silent and early talking films. Double bill with Sound of Music. They go well together with war, kids, frightening adults and tender moments. A film for the church lady.
