charming movie for children
Now that his mother has died, a young boy lives together with his father, who is sinking in a morass of depression and inertia. The life of the young boy isn't all that exciting - until he is introduced to the art of making paper airplanes. It turns out that he is very, very good at it, even to the point of winning local competitions...
Not, I suppose, a classic for the ages, but a charming movie with touches of wit and humor. It has a positive message and teaches values such as enterprise, hard work, resilience and kindly openness to other cultures. As an adult one can see the ending coming from a mile off, but what the heck - this is a pleasantly entertaining movie for children, we're not talking a thriller by Boileau-Narcejac.
I was left with a strange desire to go and fold paper planes myself.
