Storyline

A young boy in 14th century Cumbria (north of England) keeps getting visions he cannot explain. His village has so far been spared from the black death, but the villagers fear its imminent arrival. With the boy as their guide, a group set out to dig a hole to the other side of the world, so as to fulfil the visions and save the village. At the 'other side' is 20th century New Zealand !.. N.B. Flips from B+W to colour frequently. Written by Rob Hartill

"Magical"
18 February 2003 | by (Manchester) – See all my reviews

Well, what can I say, of the 20 or so reviews below, there is a dissenting voice, this is a "Truly Magical Movie" I won't go into the story, read the reviews below below for that, I'll just say, put it at the top of your "MUST SEE" list, it's long time since I saw it, and I've been looking for a copy ever since (with NO luck I might add)

Now stop reading and go watch it....... 'o) BUT!!! beware, like I said, it's Magical, and will entrance you.
