  • Critic Reviews
    "...The film works supremely well as an evocation of childhood aided immeasurably by the quite miraculous performances Erice has elicited from his tiny players..."
    Sight and Sound

    "It is a film that can be watched with great pleasure purely as an abstract examination of light and space, but Mr. Erice remains rooted in the particular details of time, place and his strongly individualized characters."
    New York Times

    "...A tragic tale of childhood innocence that's as sweet as honey, but still packs a vivid emotional sting..."
