Loved this movie as a teen!
24 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was one of my favorite movies. I was 14 when it came out, and I watched it over, and over, and over again!! There's not much to it, but it was exactly that, the "sweet simplicity" of the fairy tale type storyline that I loved, and still love. Back then I didn't even know who Milla was...I just thought she was so cool after I saw this film. Plus you have to admit, the scenery is pretty amazing. In fact it was after watching that I became very interested in traveling to India one day. Perhaps even riding that same train line through the mountains to Kathmandu. The only disappointing thing I find, is that it only exists on VHS. I only have a DVD player!! I guess it's just not popular enough to make putting it on DVD worthwhile. Well, even though it's not an incredible hit of a movie, I would still recommend it as a good wholesome family film!
