A great film dealing with experiences of postwar trauma and the attempt to rebuild lives in the aftermath of conflict. Ivan Jandl was a worthy choice for the Juvenile Oscar

An excellent film and Ivan Jandl was great. It goes to show the stress, the fear and the loss of trust the war had placed on the children especially those like Ivan's character who lost his mother during this melee.
