I'm pretty sure I'd love this DVD but since I'm in the USA I can't play it... Sad! I hope it becomes available in a format playable here soon.
This is a wonderful liook at a gifted child and his family. All educators and parents should watch it.
An enjoyable film about a phenomenal upcoming chess star with a very likeable attitude.
