WALKIN' ON A CLOUD

USA, 1979 (MIFF 1980, Programme 29)

Director: Greg Gold

The story of a troubled teenager, his brother, a young, striving stand-up comedian, and his brother's friend and mentor - an aging and forgotten vaudevillian. The story is about alcoholism, but also about youth and aging, "making it" and failing, about taking responsibility for oneself and a concern for others.
