THE MAGIC OF MARCIANO
20 February 2004 | by Norma-13See all my reviews

I was privileged to see the premier of this movie in Los Angeles and was very impressed. I had watched a portion of the filming in Canada. Was very impressed with Tony and his belief in a new actor- this was Cody's first movie. I am sure there are many kids in similar circumstances in every town. The fact that he chose to be happy made the movie educational. I found Ms. Kinski to be a very compassionate person in real life. While I am not an avid movie buff, I did enjoy the movie and hope it will come out in DVD form.
