Movie Reviews

Sympathetic drama

Sentimental but sympathetic drama wit good characterizations, that does not hold until the end as it starts dragging along the way. The part taking place in war time when the friendship between the young German girl and the older French boy starts and grows, is more interesting than the second part playing somewhere in the early 70's. This part just seems to go on and on and has a ludicrous turn in the story; the finale compensates though. Good cast saves the film from the plain direction.
