A gentle and beautiful movie
21 December 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I loved this movie when I stumbled on it in a video store and after viewing it, I promptly bought it, but that was some time ago. It is no longer manufactured on DVD and is no longer available in video stores, nor can it be bought on Amazon.

I have seen this 3 times so far and never tire of the wonderful heart warming story, it holds you throughout the whole movie.

The young boy Biddle has problems with his eyes after a fall from a horse, he consequently no longer likes horses and will have nothing further to do with them. His father has a horse ranch so all the work is left to the father and older son.

Young Biddle's life is about to change as a Blacksmith turns up at the ranch with a huge horse pulling a type of gypsy caravan with all his tools in it. At first Biddle is scared to death of the huge horse being much larger than what he is used to at the ranch.

Slowly the huge horse named Amanda senses his fear and that his bike (BMX type) is his horse replacement, that she starts to change his thinking.

I won't tell you anything of the story as it will ruin it for those who may still be able to get it. But it is worth buying and is a marvellous family DVD.

More movies like this should be made, rather than all the blood and gore for the sake of it.
