SynopsisBased on a short section of the novel Cuore by the Italian Edmondo de Amicis, Marco is a young boy living in Genoa, Italy, together with his father Pietro. But the family is not complete, for Marco`s mother left for Argentina around a year earlier in order to find work. Letters from her arrive regularly until one day they suddenly stop. Worry for his mother and what might have happened to her overcomes the young boy. Marco thus decides to embark upon a journey to Argentina in the hope of being reunited with his mother. At first, Pietro is opposed to Marco`s plan, but moved by his son*s enthusiasm, he eventually allows the boy to go. So begins Marco`s long journey of the heart. Marco encounters many people throughout his travels, and finds maturity and self-acceptance as a result of his experiences.

Fist of aul sory for my english not are so good (just kidding). But seriously, my english isnt so god, but since nobody got to review this masterpiece, I decided to try.
The story is about an Italian boy who gets separated from his mother who went to Argentina to find work as an imigrant. However in one of the letters of his mother, Marco find out that she was sick. Then begins his painful journey From the Appenines to the Andes.
The story is just so sad, Marco gets screwed for people that he dont even know all the time, but he never get nothing in return. The moments that he get lucky are so rare that chance that it would made you cry is very high.
Probably 70% of the people who got here are from Israel, since this anime got an huge popularity in the 90´s there, by th name of HaLev
Maybe I´m overvaluing this anime by giving such an high score but after all.....childhood animes are always overreted.
I don´t know if I would recomend this to anyone, but one thing is certain:
IF YOU WATCH MARCO YOU WILL CRY. read more
Characters are similar; and they like to prove to people that they are righteous to the world, and they like to have faith that the world will bring good expierences, even though they encounter problems.
