Something special...
14 April 2006 | by scott88-4See all my reviews

I have not seen this film in many, many years. I recall seeing it when I stayed home from school sick with the flu. That was about 30 years ago, and it has stayed with me ever since. Even though I saw it through a young man's eyes, I remember it being a wonderful film and one that I have remembered and searched for for many years. It is a total shame that it is not available on DVD or even VHS. Of all the films I've searched for over the years this one still alludes me and frustrates me. It's that good and that well done.

I've seen a lot of films through the years. This one is a special one and consider yourself slightly lucky if you've been able to view it and commit it to your 'movie memory'.
