Excellent movie
6 May 2002 | by (St. Petersburg, FL) – See all my reviews

Amelio and Enrico lo Verso compenetrate perfectly. I believe is one of the most humanistic movies I have seen in a long time. The performance of the actors is great and the story is simple but very powerful. There is beautiful line that can be seen how the Enrico and the kids gel along the, movie and it is very interesting.

As another person said and I agree, it is one of the best child performances I have ever seen. Excellent.
