Audience Reviews for The Eighth Color of the Rainbow

When he was asked - How many colors are there in the rainbow? - the young hero of this movie answers 8 - but not everyone can see the 8th color. It takes no effort at all to imagine the reality of that 8th color after watching this brilliantly conceived little movie. There is so much more to it than immediately meets the eye.
