It works for children too
15 May 2005 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

Some months ago we saw a trailer for this movie on TV. My five-year old son sat up, looked at the short film and proclaimed, that he wanted to see this movie.

Since then he has often asked, when the movie would be shown here in Berlin. Yesterday it was finally shown, as part of retrospective of Latin films.

The plot, that an old engine driver has to team up with a young boy to save a steam engine from being taken out of the country is such, that a child can understand it. He basically loved it - judging from his reactions and the amount he has talked about it since then.

I cannot add a lot to the very positive comments by other users. Just say that this is a good dad-son film.

Edit: Half a year later I finally managed to get the DVD, which son must have seen 20 times, at least. The film started him on two tracks: 1) He is interested in learning Spanish and asks what different words are called in Spanish.

2) More importantly, he has also wondered about legality and morals. We have had a few discussions about how some acts may be illegal, but still the right thing to do.

All in all - on the basis of the discussions we had about the movie - it is the best film we have seen together.
