| Is this available on DVD?
I was in Cape Town for 6 months in the fall of 2005 working as a volunteer with street kids, so it was really a special experience for me watching this film. I know some of the street boys figuring as extras in the movie, as Fagin's gang members. From the little knowledge and insight I got to these boys' lives, the illustration of a street boy's life in this film seemed quite realistic to me. I saw this movie in a theater with two young former street boys whom I invited to see it with me, and they both recognized a lot from their own past lives on the street. The street boys I got to know are wonderful and loving innocent boys, who shouldn't be feared. They can look rather tough when you don't know them, but that is just a facade, and necessary to live. All they really want if they approach you, is a little money to buy food. They are rarely violent, but I will admit can be bit annoying if they get too insistent ;)

Actually I really just wanted to know if this movie is available on DVD on some internet shop??? I would really like a copy...
