It seems almost impossible for me to write a review for I Am David. Nothing I could say would do this movie justice.
David is a young boy who, after being born and raised in a Communist concentration camp in Italy, is finally able to escape with the help of another inmate. In his young life he has seen nothing but human suffering and cruelty and thus does not even know how to smile. He mistrusts all humanity and expects the worst at every turn. David is on a mission to deliver a letter to Copenhagen, Denmark, and on the way encounters normal people living normal lives. Through these encounters he slowly learns to trust and love. David is armed with little else but a compass and a loaf of bread to carry him on his journey.
