Storyline

'The Other Child' is an adaptation of the Charlotte Link novel, set in both modern day and war-time Scarborough. When twelve year old Fiona Barnes is evacuated from London during the Blitz, she ends up on a remote farm in Scarborough where she meets, and falls in love with, the idealistic and patriotic son of her host family; Chad Beckett. Fiona is joined on the farm by a young autistic boy, Brian Sommerville, who has been orphaned in the bombing of London. Forming a strong emotional attachment to Fiona, Brian is seen as little more than irritant by Fiona and Chad as their love blossoms, but is cared for by Mrs Beckett until her death through illness. With Chad finally being drafted to fight abroad, and Fiona briefly at home in London visiting her Mother, Brian is allowed to leave the relative safety of the farm to live, and work, in squalor at a neighbouring farm owned by a notoriously abusive and uncaring McBright. Upon learning of Brian's fate, Fiona and Chad do nothing to rescue ...

I watched both halves, 90 min each, and enjoyed it. It's a strange mixture though, of a detective film, family drama, war-documentary and a exemplary story of the fate of a disturbed child. From an amateurs point of view, it had fine actors, but a few weak spots in the story-line, like a man being shot on a hill but later found alive in the sea. And it was very strange to watch it in German language, when obviously some of the persons could (in the background) be heard talking English! I loved the scenes from Scarborough, and this was what attracted me to watch it to begin with.
