A great teaching in a simple story
18 June 2006 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

Like other Disney's films, simplicity is the support of an intense message about life.I think this old movie would be seen by today's children, considering the actual tendency to loose essential valors and go on the fantastic ways, putting wonder-workers and extraordinary actions on service of something in the antipodes of the day by day. This movie is today more important than it was in 1948. Then it was a poetic image of real life and real valors. Today it proposes the recuperation of a lost paradise. But the real paradise built by man's inside.Yonder postures and feelings, the music represents, per sea,the right sonorous image of life equilibrium:support,tenderness and peace. Remains of a lost paradise is, today and by me, the true sense of this great Walt Disney's film.
