The Unknown Soldier's Patent Leather Shoes

Film

Time Out says

This is a part-autobiographical reverie of remembered childhood. Filming the Changing of the Guard in London, writer/director Vulchanov accidentally plays a recording of an old harvest song which transports him back to his boyhood country village at the beginning of WWII. It's a lively, affectionate, humourous and deliberately anachronistic (or time non-dependent) re-enactment of bucolic poverty, filtered through the vivid imagination of the appealing ten-year-old Mone (Tsankov), with nice camerawork and a sprightly traditional score.
