I liked it.
23 August 1999 | by See all my reviews



Seen subtitled on the International Channel, "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother [Father]" released in 1993 is a comedy/drama that stays with you a long time. It is sweet and good-natured and touches upon one of the deepest wishes that children of dead or dying parents may have -- to go back in time -- to KNOW.
