I haven't actually seen this film myself but..........
4 January 2003 | by (Hereford, England) – See all my reviews

My wife saw it at Christmas some 25 years ago and I have been searching for the details ever since I began surfing in 1997. Finally found IMDb and had a fellow member identify it for me. My wife is not really a cartoon/animation fan (unlike me!) but she has told me so many times how moving she found this film to be. She hasn't seen it for years (BBC TV screened it a few times a quarter of a century ago; always around Christmas) but every time she saw it she would cry buckets! Of course now she knows the details we'll have to see whether we can get hold of a Video or DVD.....any ideas anyone? UPDATE: June 2005: I had quite a few replies to this and eventually a really nice guy in Canada supplied me with a copy of the film. So thanks to everyone who wrote to me about this but it has now been sorted!
