The untold story of the last days in the tragic times of Oscar Wilde, a person who observes his own failure with ironic distance and regards the difficulties that beset his life with detachment and humor.
I remember seeing this film on TV twice in the late 1970's after school. Both times I was bereft of consolation after viewing it. It is one of the main reasons I became an animator.
The terrible hardship the poor little bird faces and the loving statue's inability to really help are chilling. But when finally God sends an angel down to the city the release is over whelming. I agree with the review of this film that it is good the director chose not to shy away from the religious aspect of this film. God, Jehovah, Allah, call him what you will, its the same thing.
Of all the television I watched as a child this and only one other show stand out. Truly a little gem of a film!
One day I *Will* do a remake.
