I have read many reviews on IMDb and appreciated most of them...(I will not read spoilers), this is not so much as a review as a confirmation of a review.
Mr. przgzr from Zagreb, Croatia ,his review is the most articulate and well thought out review I have read in a very long time. The author of the review captures the essence of the movie without diminishing nor attempting to read into the film more than there is.
I saw parts of this fine film years back. After reading przgzr from Zagreb, Croatia ,s review I found and watched the entire film.
What a rewarding, simple film made in 1964 and has endured the test of time even with a (slightly) familiar theme. 'Familiar' only in the sense that children and nature have a constant common denominator in every corner of the world.
Thank you Mr. przgzr from Zagreb, Croatia I have rediscovered a forgotten and hidden treasure.
