One of those movies where you feel that you have been given a message about something, but you're not quite sure what. But it took a long time to pass the message on...
The theme is familiar - the good-natured stranger dumps into a rough neighborhood, but by doing good and by not meddling in people's affairs he is able to gain a loyal circle of friends - which will eventually save his life. The guy can't speak - but people keep telling him their innermost secrets. Nice point here - people want to be heard rather than spoken to.
The main character (a black brother) dumps out of the sky to Harlem, New York. He is chased by two reptilian men (whites, of course). We are given to understand that the brother is a run-away slave - but since he can't talk, there's no way of saying. Apparently, he cannot write English...
The film comments on immigration, the social welfare system, and the black community in Harlem. It is quite out of date now, but interesting as a bit of cultural history.
It is also quite boring - funny sometimes, but I was mostly annoyed with the lack of a plot. I never knew what the brother was up to. And that feeling goes on up to and including the ending!
