When I was about six, I remember seeing the last minutes of a strange movie. It involved some aliens giving a young boy (aged less than 10 or so) back to his mother due to his love for her.

I can't remember anything else, and I was randomly reminded of this today. Any help?

    Was it Close Encounters of the Third Kind, perhaps? – wbogacz Sep 29 '14 at 19:37

    I'm amazed that anyone could get this from the details given ! – Valorum Sep 30 '14 at 11:39

Sounds a lot like the final sceneArtificial Intelligence: AI... the aliens (and the kid) are actually robots.

If that rings some bells, the setting of that last scene is almost completely frozen (probably it was showing Earth in a -distant- future Ice Age).

enter image description here

The "kid" (a near-future robot) and an "alien" (a far-future robot, sentient).

enter image description here

The mother and the "kid" (not from the scene you described, but an earlier one).

And, finally, youtube has the scene you were talking about
