It was pretty amazing. My son and I loved it. The activities were very well put together. My son was interacting with the children like he knew them. He was entertained with each and every place they had went into.

For me, the parent, this was a great experience to get my twin boys out to socialize with other children. That being said, it did take my boys a while to warm up to the group. They are used to just playing with each other thats why this was such a hit with me. I will be bringing them back so they will further develope social skills.

An interesting film. It kind of reminds me of modern, ie. current politics, where the ruling class literally gets away with murder by covering up their protected clients.
Good film , inte4resting from beginning to end.

I was most disappointed by Marc's absence. I missed his background observations. Marc gives an interesting interpretation since he if such a great film buff and dare I say it, a film scholar.
