I saw this movie when it came out. I was 7 years old, and 28 years later it STILL hasn't left my head. It was exciting, frightening, touching, scary, beautiful, fun - I remember being transfixed to the screen while watching it. Tsepo's journey to NY, the boys rolling down the hill in the tires; all of these things are still vivid in my mind. I haven't come across a family/kid's adventure film like this since. I've hoped that someday they would put this movie out on DVD, because I have a 2 year old son now and I would LOVE for him to get to see this movie. I have never seen it on TV either. It's a movie everyone should see. Rarely do you get taken to South Africa in a kid's story.
