A truly classical movie dealing with the mostly unseen side of WW2 from a child's point of view. The sudden loss of parents in a cruel and upside down turned world that a young girl cannot understand, establishing a new friendship with a farmer's son, and in the last scene the realization that she has lost everything and is really alone in an uncaring world. The acting is excellent and so is the cinematography catching the emotions. I have seen this movie when it was first released and I enjoyed just as much seeing it again. Narcisso Yepes'selection and play of the movies musical theme adds further depth to this excellent film.
