Among the loveliest ever - Tuck Everlasting of 1981
28 December 2005 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

I also saw this movie - on TV here in Sweden, back in the 80:s - and all I can do is agree with what was said in the comment I read. The Disney version is OK, yes, but still nowhere near this one.

This one is lovely, beautiful, romantic, dramatic, bittersweet... And there I'm at loss for words. Even more so, since English isn't my native language... <:) I loved it then - and misses it sooo much! Why isn't this one available on VHS or DVD??? I'd buy it in an instant! (I do own the Disney version and the book - but, oh, this is the version I really DO want!)

For those of you who haven't yet seen this film/movie: If it's at all possible - do see it! If you have seen the Disney version and somehow are able to see this one also: Do! If you liked what Disney made of it, you wont be disappointed in this one. No way!

Added: Now I own it! I do! And I'm happy as can be about it. I love this one. I do. Granted, it's not quite as I remember it. I think the opening scenes (the fair) takes too long time, but other than that it's lovely. And Paul Flessa - Jesse Tuck - is still ever so cute. ;)(Yeah, my taste has changed during these 20-some years, but apparently not when it comes to him.) Wonder whatever became of him and the other actors...
