the old grandfather character, and the way he talked to the little
girl. He scolded her mercilessly in private, but his actions showed
her that he cared for her quite deeply. He was willing to give her
the train tickets she needed, and he got her a job by bribing someone
with a mysterious black noodle. That was funny. I think our daughter
was probably 8 or 9 when we watched it together. She is 11 now, and
we still refer to it, occasionally. It changed the way we saw things,
a little. I think it is a great movie.
