Movie Reviews

An eye-opening look at the children of India
Frederick Chen | 06/07/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A wonderfully intimate look at the lives of children a world away- yet at the same so very much like our own children. One sees children going to school in the middle of a mud desert, on a city bus, in the middle of the forest, and in the middle of the night in the desert. India is trying to keep its promise of providing an education to all its children. The children envelops one in their dreams and lives."
Makes me want to go to school in India
S. Reeves | Ithaca, NY United States | 01/17/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Young children speak through child-interpreters about what makes their locale special, what they do with their friends, how they play, what they learn. The cinematography represents well the student's environment, be it on a houseboat or in a wheelchair, in grand mountains or dry mud flats. It's so good for me to see young children happy in school, despite the various derelict human conditions in some cases."
