Beautiful Film
8 May 2013 | by Sgt_Pepper1102See all my reviews

My father told me he had seen this film in 1962 when he was about 9 years old, and I saw it yesterday and although it had some technical problems such as a poor audio quality and a very dirty, grainy film, I enjoyed the warmth and simplicity of the story, it was very human and honest, with a great cinematography and amazing performances.

At first I thought I was going to see a movie for kids, but the camera work, situations and performances quickly dragged me into the story which has a lot of depth both in content and emotionally. Some might say there's a bit of political themes in this film, but it's not really propagandist or moralist at all. I recommend this for anyone who loves films like "Kes" by Ken Loach or "Little Fugitive" by Morris Engel.
