Let the Child be the Guide
Montessori
Review by Ross Anthony

Wholly captivating and a great reminder to look at the world through the eyes of a child. This film exudes the joy of learning and the beauty of wonder. The best word for this film is "adorable." And yes, of course, the Montessori method appears to be demonstrated quite clearly. However, this is a film by lovers of the method -- an honest, sincere, and even beautiful sales pitch. And as such, it lacks any discussions of the shortcomings, limitations, and caveats of the method. Nor does it venture into implications for students transitioning into secondary or higher education. The focus is on one or two specific groups of kids (ages 2-6) at one specific Montessori school in France. Not scientific, not comprehensive, but definitely charming and worthwhile, I enjoyed it a love note to childhood.
