A wonderful film about a boy (Boris, superbly played by Michael Karnowsky) who would probably end up in prison but for the interest shown in him by a male teacher who takes the trouble to really try to help him, but without doing so in a patronising or overly interventionist way - respecting the boy's autonomy. The teacher faces some difficulty from an educational establishment which insists on rules and discipline, even though the teacher's own more informal approach is clearly working better with the kids he teaches. The ending of the film leaves the outcome a little uncertain, but we know that the boy has finally come to see the man as his helper and protector. A male teacher who evinces such an interest in a boy's welfare would hardly be tolerated now, as a result of which kids like Boris end up on the streets. An incredibly important film, and a testament to a more genuinely liberal and civilised era.My Movie Rating: 10 / 10
