Best film ever
3 June 2007 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

I watched this film late one night because nothing else was on and it was fantastic, i now own the DVD. A young girl can talk to horses as a result of hiding with horses whenever her father erupted when she was a child. As a result at times of stress she becomes a horse only changing back when she has an apple. As she grows up she always keeps an apple with her just in case. She keeps bumping in to a man who owns a horse stud farm and tries hard not to ruin his life. One of the horses is unhappy and the young girl spends some time with it much to the annoyance of the owner of the farm. She is very clumsy and he becomes angry whenever he sees her. He kind of feels sorry for her so he arranges her a job, but it is not a nice job. He is furious when he finds out what the job was. She becomes really stressed and becomes a horse and she is all out of apples. He puts all his hatred and annoyance aside and treats her like a horse until he can get her back to the stud farm and give her an apple. It all works out well in the end. She tells the owner what is wrong with the horse and then the horse is happy. The owner is happy because of the girls skills all his horses have happy healthy foals and the girl is happy because she found love. Its a happy ending film and sometimes you just need a happy ending film to watch.

The bit where he treated her like a horse restored my faith in human nature. He put all his feeling aside and even though he had no idea what was wrong he reached out to help another human being. I know its only a film but that moment was just so touching.
