This movie may have gotten terrible reviews but my kid loves it & it maintains the innocence that they are entitled to. I don't want my kid to grow up so darn fast. It's simple & sweet - for little ones. You can feel safe that you don't have to run in & fast forward the \"scary\" parts.
This independently produced low-budget film was a shining example for the New Wave directors -- Truffaut, Godard, et al -- who found it proof positive that commercial films could accommodate the quirkiest and most personal of visions.
This is a wonderful family movie with a very good story. My daughter loves it and it was also one of my sons favorite movies when he was a child. We had to buy it again on dvd when my husband made the mistake of getting rid of the vhs tapes.
