Vittorio De Sica followed the humanist masterpiece 'Bicycle Thieves' with this beguiling, surreal fantasy that once again showcases the Italian director's empathy with the underdog. A fairy tale beginning - a baby is discovered in a cabbage patch and raised by a kindly old woman - gives way to a cold dose of reality when the old woman dies and the boy (Toto) is placed in an orphanage. But no matter what life throws at Toto, his faith in human nature remains intact, and is soon repaid in an extraordinary way.
The Secret Garden was originally one of the great books for children - and this film version is every bit as good.
