The story of two animals and their adventures. Milo, the cat, and Otis, the dog, are two animals who grew up together on the same farm. One day, the two are separated and begin a journey to find each other. The adventurous, and often perilous quest finds the two animals traveling across mountains, plains, and snow-covered lands searching for one another. Written by

I saw the english language version. The movie is definitely cute and charming along the lines of "Little Dog Lost", shown now and then on the Disney Channel, with, unfortunately, far less concern shown for the animal actors. It really is engaging and entertaining. However..
The cat in particlar in this one was clearly placed in peril (thrown off a cliff into a lake or similar, sent over falls 10 feet high or so in a wooden box), and thereby completely terrorized. If anyone tried to shoot this in the USA, they'd be shut down instantly. People might go to jail. It's that egregious.
The disclaimer at the end says that "animals were under close supervision with utmost concern for their safety". It does not say that none were harmed, which this disclaimer usually does. I think it likely that animals were killed in the filming of this. "Very sad, big tragedy, bring out the next generic orange tomcat!" The cat (again) seemed to change size now and then, so it certainly could have been replaced now and then, though possibly it just aged.
Cute enough to let the kids watch it, disturbing enough to talk with the kids about how the animal actors were treated.
