User review:

I first saw this film in 1975 when I borrowed it from the public library. It’s about a little boy who wakes up to find himself alone in the world. He walks into a bank, a candy store, a toy store, drives a cable car (and crashes it into a parked cable car) and a fire engine. The climax of the story is him flying an airplane up to the moon. I won’t spoil it by giving away how it ends. (Since it is very difficult to find a copy to watch, there is still the hope one might be able to.)It is just an absolutely delightful film, a true classic in its own right. I don’t know who owns it or who has the rights to it, but I believe if they were to make this film available to the public on DVD, it would achieve cult status.

Plot:

Dr. Hans Schön, widower and busy senior physician of a gynecological clinic, would probably never have known the kindergarten teacher Josi correctly, if his mother Martha did not fall off his bike one day.

The days with little Robert also distract Josi a bit from her own grief. She is pregnant, but her boyfriend does not want the child and threatens to leave Josi.
