love it
3 May 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

although the animation is not anywhere near as good as the Disney version, I grew up watching this film and love it just as much now as I did when I was a child. The story shows more in depth the journey he takes to become a real boy than the Disney version, and in 2009, having recently purchased the afore mentioned deluxe DVD that was predicted in the previous comment, I still found myself wanting to reminisce by watching this version also. its a good lesson for children growing up and offers more story lines to follow. As previously mentioned though, the Disney version is also a must see if you haven't already, but this version offers a more classic look at the tale instead of the more modern twist we see in the Disney version. it reminds me far more of reading/watching fairy tales and the old Grimm Bros classic than the Disney version. I think the previous comment sold this film way short and anyone who likes the tale of Pinocchio should watch this film with an open mind. great film and still a fan at 22.
