A well devised and entertaining film; made all the more enjoyable by the subtitles. Apart from the splendid rural Polish countryside; with a superb mixture of forestry, river and mountain streams, what does emerge from the overall story and atmosphere is that the Polish Scout movement would knock spots off their British counterparts, for with a well-disciplined yet affectionate approach to the running of the Scout Camp; there is far more constructive purpose to the entire adventure. The boys themselves are absolutely charming – typically but mildly mischievous and adventurous 10 -12 year olds – and their acting: which no doubt was superbly re-enforced by good directorship, it is one of those films where you wish it would not end as soon as it did. Well worth the viewing time and especially for anyone who had been in a similar Scouting movement in their youth.
Rating: 10 Peter Pan is alive and well, but which Peter Pan, I hear you ask?
