The world seen through the eyes and smiles of two six-year olds is depicted here in startling color photography that does not settle merely for lyrical shots of nature but provides as well poetically bizarre imagery, a genuine product of children's imagination. The two kids are wonderful and Grede's eye for the detail and of children's psychology generates ample pleasures as well as funny moments. Gentle and tender.
