Agreeable fantasy, 1 June 2016

This pretty enjoyable little programmer reminds me a little of BRIGADOON - without the musical tone - only a little I admit, but this, I repeat, inventive and very well done story should have been shot on a longer length episode or a movie. I won't repeat the topic already been made in the plot line, but it's really worth folks. Really. Ronny Reagan is convincing at the most and you stay glued to this story which is so unusual. A ghost story for the whole family. You could say it's a bit naive and you would be damn right. But for once, let yourself be brought in this pure American fantasy that you also could find in the British film or TV industry. And, above all, it's an early Don Medford and Ralph Nelson piece of work.

I highly recommend it.
