not only for children
22 April 2001 | by (Everway, Roundwater) – See all my reviews

when we watched "momo", there were apart from us only children and a few mothers to move the children about in the cinema. obviously, the "mothers" were paying not very much attention to the film, for it is a "film for children". that is not true, it's a film for any age.

"momo" takes place in a small village in italy. there lives a small girl (momo), who is the most liked and trusted person in the village. one day strange haunty gray men arrive. they visit one villager after the other and steal time from them. the villagers get busy and hectic and have no more time for each other. momo and her friends try to do something about it, but it gets very difficult and dangerous.

the film is well-acted, has a intense atmosphere and good music. beside of that, we can learn a lot from it - expecialy the adults. so watch this film and pay attention.
