Oldies but Goldies

A movie for all ages ! I saw it more than 30 years ago . It's still fresh and candid , you gotta see it for yourself ! Just a remark : the movie is ROMANIAN not Romanian-Mexican.You're gonna enjoy the setting : Danila Puss's Mill , the mountain chalet in the mountains , She-Fox's den ...It's about (the movie)that age of innocence called childhood when everything seem to be possible , when it's hard to discern reality of fiction . Also you'll gonna recognize one of La Fontaine's famous fable (the one with the crow and the fox). Veronica seem to be a sort of Romanian version of Shirley Temple , she can dance and sing but also she's genuine and spontaneous . A movie who marked our childhood (those from east-European countries but not only).
