I saw a film many years ago that I recall vaguely. It was related to Truffaut's "L'Enfant Sauvage", (The Wild Child), about a child locked in an apt. for years, seeing only cranes building highrises.
The child would mimic the motion of the cranes with its arms.
This is all I recall, and I liked the film.

Does anyone recall this film and its title?

How old is the kid? Black kid or white kid? Boy or girl? Film in English? Color film?

Here's a website about feral and isolated children, including such children in fiction. I didn't see a film reference for anything like what you're talking about, but you might get an answer if you post the question in the forum there.

Thanks. I forgot about this post for a couple days, so my response is delayed. I will look at the website.

It was a while ago and my memory is vague, I just recall the kid moving his (or her) arms like a crane. The title may have been something like 'The Language of Cranes'.

The child was 10-15 years, white, don't recall if M or F.

It may have been a short film or TV special.
