  1. FISCHER's rating of the film Sugar Cane Alley

    Histoire émouvante et chaleureuse qui refuse (à tort, à raison ?) de politiser le propos et qui reste une oeuvre remarquable d'un cinéma dit "régionaliste"... www.cinefiches.com

  2. Lee Bullitt's rating of the film Sugar Cane Alley

    obviously a very touching film, but I felt the ending was very abrupt, and that the music played at the beginning and end of the film were completely inappropriate. Having said that, you know it's going to be a tear-jerker and blood stirrer from the very beginning, and the young boy, Jose, is destined to find some sort of success despite all of the sadness and degradation in the world around him.
