Life changing and beautiful
12 September 2004 | by (Indiana, USA) – See all my reviews

My dad copied this film off the TV for me when I was too young to even watch it. It waited for me on a tape of other TV movies like "The Boy Who Loved Trolls" for years until I was old enough to understand it. Even then it touched me deeply at the power in peoples actions. The sadness and beauty of it all was so intense, even at that young age, that it became a part of me to this day. I still watch that tape every year and share it with those closest to me. They tell me it explains why I developed the way I did.

Some films go beyond film-making to a point of changing the way we see the world. This film taught me the power of melencholy, loss, and most importantly, how alone we all are in our closets. I would recommend this film to everyone and anyone and remind them to pay careful attention to the message in the story, not necessarily the sci-fi or technical aspects.
