worth watching it
2 August 2004 | by (Menden, Germany) – See all my reviews

First I saw this movie as a teenager in the early 80s. I was so impressed by actor Andrew Skidd and his sensitive kind of playing his difficult part. It took me a long time to find this movie on video tape. Now after about 25 years I watched it again - the movie was worth such a long search. Hard to understand what happened to a boy, a teenager, whose only fault it was to be in love with a young girl and to be the last to see her alive. Well, not really the last, this must have been the real murderer...The accused maintains his innocence. Was it not a crime, what the law did to him? There are so many questions the movie tells us. And there are no answers. That's why this movie has been in my memory for all those years and will be further on. A special movie, always realistically made and played. A jewel!

I wonder what happened to actor Andrew Skidd. Was this his only part in a movie? By the way, the song "Surrender to the sun" of Scott Fagan is also remarkable.
