A beautifully told story of a child's innocence and faith, filmed with exquisite detail and stunning cinematography

This miniature epic is a film that, like its young hero, will enrich those who peer into its poignant heart.

Seductively pastoral but also a bit slight, the movie saves its best scene for the very end.
