My Old Addiction

Movie Reviews By Bil Antoniou



(out of 5)

 is a delight in this positively charming family film. She plays the kindhearted Parisian girl of the title who finds herself stranded alone in a strange city and befriends a group of travelling circus performers. She falls in love with the troupe’s magician (), but he is already involved with someone else and thinks of her as a little child. One day she tells her troubles to a group of puppets, singing the famous theme “Hi-Lili, Hi-Lo”, and when a crowd gathers to watch her, a star is born! Beautifully photographed in rich Technicolour, this film is enchanting.
