Toyland (Germn short film)

Toyland (2007) - (Germany)

This movie is about a little German boy Heinrich who has a truly nice
human spirit (and if rightly raised with his natural goodness intact would make
a great man to even lead the planet I suppose - in fact he reminds me of my 
French son Andrew who at about the age of four - the last time I saw him twenty 
years ago now, as they both look and sound quite similarly natured I believe).

Fräulein Julia Jäger who plays his mother , seems too often mistaken for a Jew
in this clip, probably due to her features of having dark hair mainly I believe
which is why she is in contant need of her identity papers. She shows great
human spirit too in caring for the boy in question.

This interesting short tells us that if you mislead this young fella into thinking that
Jews in his neighbourhood are headed for some idyllic place for kids (such as 
"Toyland" as his mother meaning well tells him they are headed to) then he might 
just misguidedly want to tag along with them on the train to where it is they are 
actually going instead.

Oh well, all's well that ends well, I couldn't have borne to see any other outcome 
but that this great young boy is rescued in the end.
