    Wonderful children's tale about coming of age among show-folk. Excellent cast, editing, camera work, with decent choreography, props, & staging.

    I've watched this movie several times and it's always delightful and entertaining. Leslie Caron is amazingly believable as the naïve sweet Lili

    Sweet little story. The story of a 16-year old orphaned girl, Lili (played by Leslie Caron), who, after main trials and tribulations, gets a job in a carnival as a puppeteer's assistant. The story of misplaced love, unrequited love, innocence and innocence lost. Very moving story. Leslie Caron is wonderful as Lili and Mel Ferrer puts in a solid performance as Paul, the puppeteer. On the negative side, it is over far too quickly. Not just because it is so good and you want more, but it felt like some more detail was required. It just seems to move so fast - some time to stop, take a breath and contemplate was in order.

    Leslie Caron is back in another silly but charming musical about an orphan in a carnival. Of course we have that irritating song Hi Lili, Hi Lo here. You lose a star automatically for such things.

    A sweet, innocent and charming film that often borders on the overly-sentimental, but always aims to show kindness in the world.
