Or, maybe, more. B>ecause it is a seductive discover of the zoung Christopher Walken and his precise performance. For the story, remembering the secrets who only in child world are full of sense. Wise manner to create reference to family, supernatural, one of deep desires and a wise doctor giving the right cure. But, maybe more iinteresting, the humor is one of great virtues. Subtle, conventional, full of subtle and fresh ironz.
