Inspiring, beautiful, fun film for children and adults
20 February 2010 | by (N of the Emerald City) – See all my reviews

The reason True Heart doesn't get a ten is because it does simplify certain situations, which lower the films believability. However, this does not ruin the film, if you are the type of person that doesn't expect life to always show up as black or white. Also, given that young children are a part of its target audience, it makes sense not to make the stories events too involved. Children are great at using their imaginations to fill in the blanks, or at just accepting something at face value. So don't get stuck on the few moments in the film where moments are oversimplified. Instead, let yourself get lost in the amazing, beautiful scenery, and the mystical and magical undertones that leave you feeling inspired and hopeful about life, and the world. Yes, the Native American is slightly stereotyped, but look past that to his modeling of how to embrace, be respectful, patient, compassionate, passionate, reverent, graceful, courageous, kind and caring. As for the children, perhaps the heart on her sleeve, leaping in, openly passionate girl's character is easier to connect with, but the boy's character, with his closely held emotions, quiet passion, cautious - but still open to the world around him - exploration might be more interesting, if you give him a chance. If nothing else, they are a nice complement to each other... a good reminder of how different, yet similar we are as human beings. Go on, watch this film using your child-mind. View it from a place of curiosity, innocence, and imagination. You won't be sorry.
