This delightful story will appeal to all children and their parents. Why does not one of the film or video distributors re-release it for an entirely new generation of viewers? I would willingly buy a copy
30 October 1998 | by (Brisbane, Australia) – See all my reviews

The setting is a small Italian village - the story is of a small boy and his sick donkey. The boy believes that God can make his donkey well again and tries to take his donkey into the local church. When the priest refuses permission, the boy hitch-hikes to Rome and finally gains admission to the Vatican where a "higher authority" irons out his problems and sends a message to the priest that the donkey be allowed a brief interlude in the Church. A delightful story, beautifully enacted, and should be re-released to enable today's children to enjoy it too.
