A small boy in a remote village in the 1940s. Entirely charming and with some real drama.
A period in the life of a small boy in a remote village in the 1940s. His family, neighbours, employer, strangers, fears, hopes, goblins, cows... A limited cast and scope, as is appropriate for the life of a small boy in a small village. We see life both from the boy's point of view and also from that of the adults who dominate and influence his life, for good and ill. There's some historical context, as well as the timeless life of the countryside and human emotions and motivations. The lead actor is wonderfully convincing and is supported by a competent cast. There's a good use of country and town backgrounds. The plot works but it's the human interactions which stay with one. Entirely charming and with some real drama.
