Took a day off from work to watch some more movies at the film festival. The first was "French Men", which was about 4 friends and their lives. Nice, but nothing extraordinary. The surprise package was "I am jumping over all the puddles", which was played instead of "The Quiet American". It is the story of little Adam, who wants to grow up to be a great horse trainer and rider, just like his father. His dreams are abruptly halted when he contracts polio, but the boy persists, and with the help of some loveable little friends, learns to ride the General. The film is beautiful and Adam is just superb. Worth taking a day off to watch.
