Interesting film in a petite size
12 April 2002 | by Pro JurySee all my reviews

Not a story, but a chapter of story in the life of a truly physically crippled child. This came across as a fine children's film.

To West African eyes (the original audience), the poverty depicted is an accepted reality. But to my American eyes, the poverty and plight of these children utterly overpowered the plot. More interesting than entertaining. Unforgettable on its own terms.
