I love this film for many reasons but I think it primarily captures for me the atmosphere of growing up as a boy in the 80's. I've heard the film is considered a Sci-Fi but in my opinion its more like a family film focused on raw basic human emotions of childhood, friends, love and family and what it means to be human. The human element. Daryl a kind of android child learns what it means to be human finding real emotions and a family, but then is ripped away from his home, family, and friends, forced into a very sterile un-friendly environment. I believe this symbolizes how I and many others feel our society is today, cold and sterile. There are strong emotions conveyed in the film of a longing I think many people feel, to go home to the way it "used to be" in a subjective sense. A better time focused around joys of Life and love of friends and family. Latter in the movie things begin to change powerfully through the world's fastest jet that romantically Screams through the air, symbolic of a better era of true engineering and innovation that has past but now comes roaring powerfully to reclaim the Truth and what has been lost! With the innocence of a child behind it to wake us all up and bring us all back home again. The music throughout the film creates a sense of longing and wanting to belong and to come home. The music as Daryl returns home and following into the credits speaks very directly of these emotions. "where amI going I've been lost so long" "Somewhere i belong" "waking up in emptiness alone-" "open your arms to me" It is a heart warmed Up-beat Film, and Barret Oliver (Daryl) dose a wonderful job. If you grew up as a child in the 80's and or like a good heart warmed movie, you will likely enjoy this film on some level.
This is a good movie for both children and adults. It is a heartwarming story about a little boy who found a family and friends that loved him. I recomend this film to those who like clean family entertainment.
Fun recapture of the times since past! A treat of a young boys adventures as an almost human boy who everyone cares about. So much that one would compromise oneself to preserve what could be done today! Expect little and just enjoy the banter of what is seemingly a normal place.
It's been a long while since I've seen this film.I happen to know from a personal level what it's like to be ripped away from the only home you know. I am glad to know,copies of this still exsist.
I'm 46 years old and I still like this movie as much as when it first came out. It's wholesome entertainment and though it falls well short of The Wizard of Oz, still has it's charm.
