Interesting idea and good low budget movie.
17 November 2017 | by toneandgrooveSee all my reviews

I thought this was a pretty fair movie, particularly given it was clearly a low budget affair: A young girl loses the adored company and companionship of her father and as her ¨luck¨ will have it, has him replaced by a wounded German airman.

The whole shebang was bound to end in tears of course and sad to say the airman's demise is at the hands of ignorant locals. But who can blame ignorant locals for being ignorant? Only real criticism is why the dogs were let loose when he was already in he river. A little more thought as to how he could have been caught wouldn't have gone amiss. The boys after all had already found out about his existence. A more perceptive ending could have been achieved in my opinion. Nice touches in the scenes where the two main actors clearly don't understand each others language.
