30 hand picked films. A new one every day
After the wings that she needs for her school play costume are damaged beyond repair, little Amelia scours the streets of London looking for replacements.
A little charmer, with a freshness and vitality not out of place in the French New Wave- i much prefer Russell's angels to his devils, a fall from grace.
Charmingly eccentric little scherzo from an amateur Russell already imbued with many of the preoccupations, flourishes and tics of his later work.
She wanted wings! not cabbages!
Very precious, fantastical, and definitely hints of new-wave. Sort of reminds me of Zazie. Btw, Amelia's style is spot on.
Precious little masterpiece. What a charming, effective little movie. Russell was already a genius in the 50s.
