I got to know the importance of relation with people, seeing this movie. Oliver, the hero of this movie, I thought that he has beautiful heart truly. I angry that Fagin who made a good child like Oliver steal. The criminal put the blame on one of Oliver.

In the Orphanage in which Oliver was employed, there are not only a bad child. A woman called Nancy differs from everybody. Nancy protected Oliver in front of everybody. I regard Nancy having protected, for she would not want he to be deeply involve in crime Oliber wrong. I think that Nancy has learned theft since she was child, so she would like you to become like her.

In the middle stage, I expect that he is deeply involve in crime, but thanks to her help, he regained him. I thought it important to live obediently. I would live like Oliver to stick to own will to the end.
