Sometimes a picture really does matter.
When I was running through different movies to watch on Amazon Prime, I saw this title (“I am David”), the picture, and did NOT read the synopsis and instantly assumed it was an old Biblical tale about King David. Not that there is anything wrong with movies like, I just wasn’t in the mood to watch them.
But this movie occurs nearly 2000 years later in 1952 communist Bulgaria.
David is the name of a small boy determined to grasp at the ring of life.
David has known little more than the brutal truth of socialist and/or communist rule and the dank grey nasty brutish environment of a political enemies internment camp.
And that my RVing friends is just where the story begins.
But along the way, you can experience Davids journey where he learns about hope, redemption, and freedom.
- Cinematography is very good.
- Surprisingly sparing dialog – which did not hurt the movie at all.
- The STAR of the show was a young boy actor with a wonderful performance.
- Joan Plowright was absolutely wonderful in the play.
- I think the movie underperformed ratings-wise and is deserving of much higher ratings.
- A really great, if abbreviated, glimpse of life in a non-Republic society from the view of the camps that contain people who champion democracy/republic-ism.
Please let me know what you thought of this movie. RV52.com sure enjoyed it.
