it is fair to say than it is a masterpiece. and nothing more. because it is not only a remarkable adaptation of a book for children but it remains a precious film with children, seductive, great, impressive. for a form of high honesty, for atmosphere and for the science to preserve the spirit of the book of Molnar Ferenc. in the past but today too, one of the most important virtue remains the performance of Anthony Kemp as Erno. not only for the status of the most touching character but for the expectation of each reader of "The Boys of Paul Street". because the end of the film reminds the emotion from the last pages of the novel. and this could be the basic motif to read the book, to see this unique adaptation.
