Trivia

Although based on a true story, this film takes several liberties from the actual event. The most notable is the fact that, in real life, the image on the balloon was of none other than Ariel from Disney's The Little Mermaid (1989). See more »

Can't recommend it enough...
10 November 2001 | by (York, England) – See all my reviews

This is just a short comment but I stumbled onto this movie by chance and I loved it. The acting is great, the story is simple and touching, and the lines, especially from the 4-yr-old Desi, are so cute and sad. Seek it out.
