The film tells the story of a young boy who is taken in hand by his surrogate father, the projectionist of the local cinema, and initiated into the magic relm of movies. The film is a hymn to movie romance, all the more so since in the real world love is fleeting, full of pain and regret. It is a bittersweet lament for the love that eludes us in real life, but is there to confort us in the dark embrace of the cinema.

Jump Cut: Hollywood, Politics and Counter Cinema
Steven, Peter (editor)
Book Number: 40103
ISBN: 0919946550
Between the Lines 1985 8vo softcover 400pp index, b/w illus. very good. In the world of film, Hollywood has always been the center of power; it has supplied the dominant voice. Hollywood stars and movies with their sophisticated blend of entertainment, art, and ideology have captivated audiences everywhere. But there is another world of film, perhaps lesser known: the counter-cinema. This kind of film provides a dynamic, growing opposition -- a subservice counterpoint -- to Hollywood. It includes the work of radical Third World filmmakers, the women's movement, gays and lesbians, and the independent left. It is a practice that identifies with political movements in society and has developed a conscious critique of the dominant cinema. The essays in this collection bring together an integrated analysis of Hollywood and the counter-cinema, and call for a political criticism of the cinema.
