Excellent, better than Any other version I've seen hands down.
25 February 2016 | by See all my reviews

This is an all-time favorite movie for our family, my girls and I watched it many time as they were growing. When I first watched the movie I had no idea this was the original, what a beautiful and pleasant surprise my girls, mom, and I loved it, in fact my youngest daughter looks a lot like Elizabeth Sigmund which made me love the film even more. I'm very fortunate to have found this VHS film at the Goodwill store: it will be treasured. The Swiss Alps are just majestic and beautiful, and even though the film is in black and white the beauty of the Alps is undeniable. the story is a classic filled with love,passion,drama,and humor. The cast is just excellent, for me this film lack nothing. The Hollywood versions of this classic are well made movies,and are the ones I grow up with, however, this Heidy by Mr. Luigi Comencini tops them all.
