Young boy whose father was from Denmark and mother from a tropical island must live with his paternal aunt in Denmark. His skin color becomes an issue right away and he decides to escape and live in the forest.
I first saw this film in 1975 when I borrowed it from the public library. It's about a little boy who wakes up to find himself alone in the world. He walks into a bank, a candy store, a toy store, drives a cable car (and crashes it into a parked cable car) and a fire engine. The climax of the story is him flying an airplane up to the moon. I won't spoil it by giving away how it ends. (Since it is very difficult to find a copy to watch, there is still the hope one might be able to.)It is just an absolutely delightful film, a true classic in its own right. I don't know who owns it or who has the rights to it, but I believe if they were to make this film available to the public on DVD, it would achieve cult status.
