A Beautifully Moving Story
15 January 2005 | by littlemamabigdaddySee all my reviews

A truly uplifting, bittersweet tale that provokes thought about how short and precious life is. Miss Healy gives a wonderful performance as a child with an insight for life that is well beyond her years. Her remarkable talent as a ballet dancer adds much culture and grace to the film. The Dudley Moore character's humor and compassion along with the magnificent and moving score make this a wonderful film which I will always cherish. I was so disappointed to find that it had not been released on DVD as of yet. I also learned there is not a soundtrack available either. I feel the release of a DVD and soundtrack would be a nice tribute to the memory of the wonderfully talented Mr. Moore who has now moved on to the next part of his journey.
