Great movie: The story of a young brother & sister on the streets
16 March 2001 | by (San Francisco, USA) – See all my reviews

I saw "Surviving Paradise" with my twelve year old son, after hearing that the San Francisco Parent Teacher association endorsed it.

I also saw Jan Wahl the reviewer for KRON tv and she really liked it.

I think "Surviving Paradise" was a bit stereotypical, but my son loved it and I thought the kids playing in the movie were fantastic.

Overall, I give it a thumbs up and think that with all the crap our children watch, it is good to see a film with so much humanity in it.
