A beautiful TV movie
24 December 2000 | by (Redmond, Washington, USA) – See all my reviews

A wonderful TV movie about the friendship between an elderly Jewish man and a young African-American boy, set during the Vietnam war. Peter Ustinov and the child actor give excellent performances in an emotionally powerful story by Rod "Twilight Zone" Serling. Haven't seen the remake with Peter Falk in the Ustinov role, but I sure wish the original was available to buy or rent -- I'd love to see this movie again.
