User Reviews

It was an amazing story told with wit and grace
21 October 2000 | by (Ottawa, Ontario) – See all my reviews

Bruno was the kind of movie that I will see over and over. I am not usually a fan of movies starring children, and I generally look for some (intelligent) action. This dreamy story of an angelic, cross-dressing young boy was presented with style and compassion and offered a lesson in respect. Run don't walk to rent it!
