A Wonderful Film
1 April 2005 | by Zugvogel1See all my reviews

The Film is Fantastic,Dramatic in one.First you don't know,that the Film is a Childhood-Memory of an Adult man.The contain is About Friendship,courage,but also about Death. About..........loosing a Person you well known,and the Hurt,about that what happened.Four Boy see themselves as Knights.Four Knights who are staying for justice,honesty,courage and sincerity.To stay together and Help.The Film is keeps high these four virtues whole Time.There is much what Child and Teens, but also Adults, can learn from this Film. The End is Dramatic ,but see it self...

I'm also an Adult today and I see this Film not so long ago.I feel that I was back over 22 Years into my own Childhood. Also I have seen much Child-Films,this Film is absolutely the Best Film in this I ever see...
