A capturing story, my children loved it.
13 July 2000 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

A capturing story, my children loved it the first time and the twentieth time of viewing. It's a film that can be seen often and the magic doesn't disappear.

If you're fond of horses then it's a film to beat Black Beauty.
