A good, light film for the family
2 October 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I first saw this film in 1975 when it was first released. I was on a first date. 30 years later I am still with that date.

Rosebud holds many memories for us as it was the first of many films we saw together.

This is a lighthearted film, it's not written for the highly intellectual but it does have some very good actors. If you want a family film without too much violence or bad language this is the one for you.

The director is of cause world renowned. One of his earlier films, but definitely not to be knocked until you've seen it. ENJOY
