Downtown a Street Tale is a "must see' film
2 May 2007 | by danskevej2000See all my reviews

I saw this movie with a couple of friends at the Apollo theater in New York while on vacation. And must say this movie 'stayed with me' for days. It is incredible. So much so when I found it premiering back here in Los Angeles, after wrangling some tickets I went to see it again with my family. This is one of the most gripping, in your face films I've come across in ages. Kudos to the writers.... And the fact that so many Oscar nominees invested their time in the film alone, says a lot. I was so touched at the plight of those kids, it brought me to tears. I wasn't alone. There were also a number of laugh out loud scenes, making it a good mix. This is a must see film for every parent. And for kids that get mad at parents. Even those kids that have running away from home - in the back of their minds will certainly change their perspective. Wake up America,,,,,,,,, For those taking time to write trash about the film, where are your heads???? I can see that 'You' simply don't get it. Go - take another look ---this time with an open mind. I personally hope this film is shown in every city in the country. And the sooner the better. Music wise Irene Cara did a great job. But my favorite was the Petula Clark song 'Children of Color'. Hear it once and I'm sure it will become a classic. Again the acting was great and I advise everyone not to miss this film.

PS. It should be known the night we were there 1500 people packed the Apollo Theatre while another few hundred had to be turned away..(I learned later) And all of these folks gave standing ovations several times. Which prompted me to write this not so idle comment.
