No matter how old you are or what part of town you lived in growing up, over the years the same conflicts and challenges surrounding the first loves of teenagers and young adults have been essentially been the same from generation to generation. Regardless which first love Coming-of-Age movie you choose to watch, you will be able to find a connection to your past.
The story of a Jewish boy in Czechoslovakia just prior to WWII and the man who saved him and many other children from the depravations of the Nazis. The story of David and his saviour touched me in a special way and I am positive that other people who have seen the film have had a similar experience. A must see!!
