A cute tale where the cynical loses out!
16 April 2000 | by (Washington, DC) – See all my reviews

A cute adaptation of the comic, known as Manolito Four Eyes here. The world of young Manolito, from his absent father to his stern mother, from the bullying children to his angry teacher, screams of pain and jade, but through his eyes we come to accept these things as small obstacles we can overcome, or at least adapt to accept. On a trip with his father, a trucker, we come to laugh at his repeated motion sickness, and his spying on a late-night rendezvous. Did he really see what we in the audience think he saw? Don't try to second-guess Manolito Four Eyes!
