all time favorite
16 August 2005 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I had to give this one a 10 rating. It is the best film of all time. I really love this one. It is extremely well casted. All the young actresses and actors are now megastars. All the colours are great the costumes and the lights and production designs. The PD is a dutchman!!! I listened to the directors commentary and I really learned that this was a project in which the makers put their hearts in.

This film is all heart.Warm!

To some people it may be a bit to sugarcoated. If you are a macho don't watch it. The rest of you .....don't miss it.

If there are 10 things you have to do before you die reading the book and watching the film must be on that list.

The title LITTLE WOMEN is nice but gives you the wrong idea. It's not just for little girls.
