    “I am in Beijing now, and watching this movie bring me to tears. The music, the light, the smiles, the ice, so many memories. I was 5 at the time that Carle did this movie. It captures so completely my experience of spending long days at the rink. It is so cold outside, so warm inside. Wonderful, thank you Gilles and the ONF. ” — renaudmichel@mac.com, 3 Feb 2010
