Oh how nostalgic. Love the names of the boy and the town, Lentil and Alto. Love the series of images as the boy walks through the town practicing his harmonica. Love the ending. Not so sure I like the message that Sneep's attitude needs reforming - maybe he has a point about Carter. Read full review
