Fears of Children (1951) [Short]

USA (MIFF 1955 , The Family Circle)
Director: Francis Thomspon

A film about Paul, a normal five-year-old
and his well intentioned parents. In a series of
episodes typical of those arising in families with small children, it shows how Paul's fears
are related to his feelings about his parents.
With naturalness and deft touches of humour
it gives an insight into some of the many problems that arise when parents are unduly
protective or over severe.
