This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
The power of education and the need for people to be literate and above all the fact that every age is good to start learning something. I highly recommend you to watch this movie and even making kids watch it. I told the story to my son was getting into first grade as I wanted him to know that education is still not available for everyone in this world and we should make best use of what we have.....
Very good but not great by-the-numbers uplifting story about kids and old people and education being a good thing and how you gotta show some resolve and determination develops a dark undercurrent and unexpected depth as background and history are revealed to the audience.
