Amy's travels, when she is lost, take her through a wide range of Melbourne locations, and represent a long convoluted trip, which would most likely beyond the average 8-year-old child, requiring much walking and considerable use of public transport. See more »
Do you think that someone who can't speak, could sing?
I once saw a woman who couldn't walk, but she could dance.

Very well done and touching, still fairly standard style movie
Although I liked 'Amy' a lot, and will give it high marks, I disagree with the statement by other reviewers that the movie differs a lot from the standard American fare.
Sure, the scenery is great, the people talk different accents, and the cops are almost British in their politeness. Yet, from a plot point of view this movie is as canonical as it can be. For starters there is the not so subtle emotional plot line of a mother and her daughter who have not completed mourning their loved one. There is a considerable amount of bad guys and good guys, whose roles sometimes flip. Halfway through the film there is an extended chase and search sequence. Then there are the characters with a serious deficiency, like the guitar player who is a dropout, which turns out to be a great asset in the plot. I mean, this is Disney! And last but not least there is the happy ending.
