The Great Land of Small
22 July 2004 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Beautifully photographed and charming Canadian children's fantasy was, when I was little, one of my favourites, and when I have kids, I'll be sure to treat them to this little gem. Two kids go with their mother to their grandparents farm in Quebec and meet a leprechaun-like man whose gold dust has been stolen by an evil tavernkeeper. Now the kids must help the little man retrieve his gold dust and travel over the rainbow to an enchanted land. The script is meant for kids, but it can entertain and enlighten adults as well. The direction is splendid, and the photography in this film is out-of-this-world (no pun intended towards the film's plot!). It's interesting to see people like Karen Elkin and Michael Anderson before they became the TV stars they are today. Only problem with this is that it seems slightly disjointed in the storytelling, but that's about it. 4/5

Rated G
