Irrepressibly wonderful little boy, poignant ending.
25 November 2006 | by pakistan-2See all my reviews

I saw this film in the early '80s. The Public Broadcasting System thought it worthy of airing in the Boston area. A truly remarkable and irrepressible little boy is adopted by an old Jewish couple. (I read that the director of the movie interviewed over 1000 children to find the little actor in this story.) The movie is filmed in Hungary just before the Nazi invasion. The country village is colorful and charming. Yet one knows what is coming. The ominous foreboding is off set by the wonder of the relationships. He collects frogs in a bucket and accidentally lets the out in the kitchen. Then the fun of catching them. The couple teach this little gentile their rich Jewish traditions. And then the inevitable... As a gentile, I found the Jewish life -wonderful. And because of it, have become hooked on Jewish film festivals. I love this film and want to see it again!
