The 400 Blows (1959)

Moonfleet (1955)
"A darker pirate adventure from Fritz Lang-if 'A High Wind in Jamaica' is a song of innocence, 'Moonfleet' is a song of experience."

Sciuscià (1947)
"One of Vittorlo de Sica's two great neorealist films, along with 'Bicycle Thieves', both centered around childhood - a harsh, heartbreaking picture, made with the most eloquent simplicity."

A Kid For Two Farthings

"Another film from Carol Reed, a magical story about a boy and his 'unicorn' adapted by Wolf Mankowitz from his book, set in the Jewish quarter of London."

Add items to section

Our Mother's House

"A haunting, beautifully crafted, and little-seen film from Jack Clayton, the director of 'The Innocents', about a family of children living on their own in a house in London whose existence is disrupted by the appearance of their long-lost father, Dirk Bogarde."

The Curse of The Cat People

People who added this item 119 Average listal rating (59 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 6.9
"The producer Val Lewton hated the title of this film, which is one of the most movingly poetic and beautifully detailed portraits of a solitary childhood ever made."
