more than story is the acting. more than acting can be the presence of Maureen O Hara who does a superb role. but the basic virtue is the science of director to use in perfect manner each of actors in a touching portrait. a film with old fashion flavor who gives subtle nuances to humor and dramatic moments, too smart to be pink, too precise to be only a family movie. a film like a chocolate box because it remembers the fundamental pillars of each existence and , without be moralistic, remade the admirable atmosphere of classic films. to say than Jason Bereghe is a special partner for O Hara is not inspired option because the acting becomes a form of tennis play. and Haley Joel Osment does a good work only because he can not makes exce3ption. a lovely film with ideal dose for each of its ingredients.
