The Happy Prince, a very moving and remember able movie
16 December 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie comes to mind every year at this time, Christmas. l was a young girl watching the cartoon. And l remember crying so hard, trying not to let my brothers see me. l remember the Sparrow so happy to be going south for the winter. The statue Prince with his soft voice asking the Sparrow to help him. The Sparrow was so unselfish. When l think of this movie now,l have tears. l haven't seen it sense that time. l still remember most of it. When ever l tell someone about it, l get moved by it once again. Interestingly enough, everyone l tell remembers it as well. l would very much like to see it again. Even purchase it.
