Excellent
18 August 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I watched this recently on DVD and I rate it as excellent - if you like children and have compassion for the disadvantaged.

Although there was nothing outstanding in terms of filming or special effects the children's' acting is great and it is a truly heartwarming story, often difficult not to cry! Even more so when you realize that it is true.

The other aspects of the story are cleverly interwoven, with interaction between the teachers, and with the teacher's home life, with well acted and thoroughly believable lines. However, it is always the scenes with the children that steal the show.
