What are people saying?

  • Manny Lage's rating of the film Here I Am

    One of the most beautiful, honest, and poetic look of children the cinema has offered. Childhood expressed perfectly in ten minutes. It's surprising how well Baillie manages the material to the point that the children's disabilities have no purpose in the film; the children are represented just as normal as any other child, and their experience can represent the childhood experience for all children.
