Incredibly sweet and touching story
12 June 2002 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

This is a heartbreaking story, simply about the incredible bond between son and father. Walter and Henry have always worked as a team. They earn their living thrue streetmusic, both of them being extremely talented musicians. But what happens to twelve-year old Henry when his father gets seriously ill? Henry has never met any of his other relatives, he has never gone to school and never had to rely on anyone except his dad. Now a new world opens for him. Nicholas Braun, the kid playing Henry, carries this movie on his small shoulders. The rest of the cast, wellknown and respected actors, are also good, but there is something special about Nicholas. He truly makes you f e e l the pain in having to see your idol in life, the man you love and respect the most in the whole wild world, being so sick he can't even take care of himself. And even less; take care of his own son. I give you only one advice: keep your eyes open for Nicholas Braun in the future. Lets hope he makes more breathtaking performances like this one.
