On a winter morning, a mother goes to waken her son Heinrich; his bed is empty. She leaves her flat to find him. The neighbors' door, with a Star of David painted on it, is ajar, the furnishings in disarray, the family gone. She asks passersby, runs to the police then on to the rail yard. Flashbacks show that Heinrich and the neighbors' son Paul are six years old and best friends. Paul's family's deportation is expected soon; Heinrich's mother tells her son that they're going to Toyland. Heinrich wants to go with them, has a bag packed, and listens for their departure. His mother realizes he's joined them, and her resolve becomes more urgent. Will she arrive in time to save Heinrich?

Naoya K (ag) wrote: Kiarostami's first feature is a juvenile story in which sweetness and bitterness are well-blended. It is birth of his style which is something you'd wanna call it "Iranian neo-realism" under direct influence of Italian neo-realism. Also, this film proves that just a boy walking around can be a film.

Bobby L (nl) wrote: This starts off pretty well, but after both Campbell and Landon, returning as their characters from the first, are killed, and the killer is given a partner, for absolute no sensible reason, seeing as how he killed soo many last time, it makes no sense. The partner guy is irritating as hell, and the whole movie ditches the realistic and somber attitude of it's predecessor, in favor of being more action oriented, and it's just not that interesting, and the ending dialogue is laughable.

Frankenheimer, Rod Serling, along with the blessing of the Kennedy Administration set the bestselling novel for a big screen story about the balance and abuse of power, and the importance of remaining faithful to our constitution as it was handed down to us by our forefathers. ~ @thestaticisland
