Delightful for both children and grown-ups
10 October 1998 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

A time-less masterpiece based on Beatrix Potter´s children´s stories. Beautifully acted (danced) and delightful in every way. Watch out for Joan Benham in the small silent role of Beatrix´ childhood nurse
