A Powerful Film
21 July 2001 | by (Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada) – See all my reviews

This film is truly excellent. Not only does it feature superb location and music, but it is also an unforgettable story. You soon learn to look past the idea of "animals can't talk" and see how wonderful it really is, and you don't need to be young to enjoy. So powerful, it will bring you to tears.
