This is the first movie I have ever seen in my entire life. I had 4 years at that time and when my father asked what would I like to do next (it was my birthday) I said: I want to see it again. So we saw the film to times in a row. This film is about two boys in occupied Checozlovaquia and have powerful images that still round my mind. It reminds mi of The 400 blows and other classics in the French Nouveau Vague movement. Even though I saw it almost twenty years ago, some of the images in this film are part of my mind right now: a beautiful boy lost in the woods, a girl crying when the mother is cutting her head, the snow (being Mexican, I have never seen the snow in my life) and of course the beautiful golden light of those locations in the East of Europe. I really invite anyone interested in cinema, not only East Cinema, but Art Cinema in general, to watch and enjoy this beautiful diamond about love, freedom and friendship.
