Anime Fan: According to IMDB, this movie was actually completed in 1975, not 1977... making Susan Hemingway 14 when her scenes were shot. The movie was not released, however, until 1977 due to editing/censorship issues. (See the IMDB entry for more details.)
johnvigers: An enchanting film carried, in noble fashion, by Asa Butterfield, whose performance outshines that of most of the adult players. The scenes of bustle at the station are well done, however the two occasions where he is about to be mown down on the tracks didn`t work for me-a speeding train seems to be approaching the terminus at impossible velocity! The overall effect of the movie is excellent and the conclusion well done.
GwenKillerby: A perfectly standard youth film, yet, it's so well made and the cast is acting so well, it's evolves to something special. Nice to see it is not zu feige to address lesbian love with 15 year old actresses, their age at the time of shooting.
