Trivia

Nello Daas aspires to be an artist, like his idol, Peter Paul Rubens, whose painting he "visits" for inspiration in Antwerp Cathedral. The painting Nello sees in the film is Rubens' triptych, "The Descent from the Cross" (1612-1614). Other Rubens paintings in Antwerp Cathedral include "The Elevation (Raising) of the Cross" (1610-1611), also a triptych; and "The Assumption of the Virgin Mary" (1626), the Cathedral's altarpiece.

Quotes

Nello Daas: [Nello and his grandfather encounter a man on the road who has beaten his dog and left him for dead; after the man leaves, Nello listens to the dog's breathing] I think he's only a little dead.

Heartwarming story
26 September 2018 | by violakayeSee all my reviews

.There are three movie versions of this story. I like this one the most because it is nostalgic. Unfortunately, I have not been able to find a DVD or VHS of it and I really want to see it again.
