Vittoria De Sica examines the cataclysmic consequences of adult folly on an innocent child in The Children Are Watching Us, a vivid, deeply humane portrait of a family’s disintegration.
This is an excellent film that shows the innocence of children and how hard it is for them to comprehend the adult world or maybe they just don't care too and choose not to get wrapped up in adult bullshit.
There are few filmmakers who have had careers quite like Vittorio De Sica. This is one of his towering masterpieces!
i kinda have a feeling that this film will grows in me eventually...An italian neorealist version of Kramer Vs Kramer...
Una certa rigidità nelle interpretazioni (paradossalmente persino nel bambino vedo troppo mestiere) impedisce al dramma di esplodere in tutta la sua forza.
Well made, well acted, great script, but no way I'm giving it higher than a three because it's completely, actively misogynist for reasons that are beyond me.
The child's play is very moving
Not De Sica's best, but still a great movie.
