Lili - enduingly sweet,
This review is from: Lili (VHS) (1953) (VHS Tape)
Leslie Caron is the stranded young woman alone in France. A chance meeting with a slick magician from the visiting circus enthralls her and she follows him finding employment in a puppet show. As she becomes mesmerised with the caddish magician she is blind to the real love the puppet master has for her.
So delightfully lovely - full of pathos in the puppet characters. Leslie Caron is well-suited to the childlike yet maturing Lily - wide-eyed and conscious at the same time.
A story about growing up, courage and the risk that is love. Watch it with your children!
