I seldom take time to comment on the Internet. However, this movie deserves much more than my time since I have such wonderful memories of it. Maybe this is because I watched it at the right time in my life. I must have been about 11 years old. I loved the movie so much and I think you will too. If you have kids, or are a kid, you (they) will enjoy it all the more. I believe that we all experience that "love at first sight" that lifts you from earth and makes you walk on clouds. This is what this movie so beautifully replicates. Enjoy it! Just like your first "puppy love," you will always treasure it!
