So far as films about boyhood are concerned, this is without doubt one of the very best. It is a beautifully written story, expertly transposed to film and with a cast that could not be rivalled. All in all, both this film and its sequel: Le Château de Ma Mere would be essential to any collection depicting the all-important, precious but sadly short-lived period of childhood. It’s only failing is that the character of Marcel, the older boy, remains the same size over a three year period, and I do not understand how his father: a schoolmaster, was not aware that his son could read! I would also like to point out that by no stretch of the imagination can any part of this film be regarded as controversial; except in narrow-minded, bigoted and prudish Britain. The nude scenes are incontestably charming, innocent and just as much a part of the film as watching a kitten playing with a ball of wool. Might I therefore suggest that the word: ‘Controversial’ be scrapped altogether, because in civilised parts of the world, where nudity is accepted, it would meet with ridicule.


Seek beauty and you will find them. Seek perfection and they will reveal. Seek love and they will respond.

In terms of films about boyhood, this one is an unrivalled gem. It evokes the true essence of exploration; the excitement of learning, and above all, the treasured and priceless importance of companionship. It is a beautifully written story, competently transposed to film and with a cast that could not be bettered. All in all, both this film and its sequel: Le Chateau de Ma Mere would be essential to any collection depicting the all-important, precious but sadly short-lived period of childhood. It’s only failing; and I stress that is a minor point (forgive the pun) is that the character of Marcel, the older boy, remains the same size over a three year period, and I still do not comprehend how his father: a schoolmaster, was not aware that his son could read! I would also like to point out; and for the benefit of those who might be misled by the RFF comments, is that by no stretch of the imagination can any part of this film be construed as controversial; except in narrow-minded, bigoted and prudish Britain. The nude scenes are incontestably charming, innocent and just as much a part of the film as the buying of a loaf of bread. Might I therefore suggest that the word: ‘Controversial’ be scrapped altogether, because in civilised parts of the world, where nudity is accepted, it would meet with ridicule.

Peter Pan is alive and well, but which Peter Pan, I hear you ask?

This is a must see for anyone! It's easily attainable, fun for the whole family and the nudity is quite natural and innocent.

A wonderful film that is a must-see. The young cast excells and the scenery - in it's various forms - is breathtaking. Get it for your collection now.
