Brief Synopsis – A little boy tries to control fate, by believing on tge bear impossibble, in order to get his father back home from WWII safely.
My Take on it – I usually enjoy movies that encompass both fact and fiction in its narrative because they work off each other in order to enhance the storytelling.
Thus movie has a strange premise but well you look at the script as a whole you get the feeling of a slight bit of magic in the tale.
The setting is great and we are transported perfectly to another time and place.
The flashback narrative also helps to enhance the realism of the story and gives it a nostalgic feeling of us viewing our own childhoods.
Bottom Line – Strange idea but it still works well within the confines of the script. Love the use of fact in order to enhance the fiction. The setting and the flashback narration works very well. Recommended!
