Interesting Adaptation, a lesson in early film
20 September 2004 | by (Cordova, TN) – See all my reviews

I would have to say, this adaptation is extremely interesting as an early film. You must watch it keeping in mind that the music and sounds, background and scenery were difficult to reproduce.

There is this one scene that is mesmorizing in a way I cant describe unlike any other film experience. Little Heidi climbs to the top of a mountain in the Alps and happens across a fawn. This is no studio model, its a beautiful little fawn that happened to make it into the movie and it is such a charming effect and for a moment, I forgot the fake sets, the cornflake snow and the silly costumes of this early movie. They took great pains to shoot these scenes in the outdoors and did a great job.

If you enjoy the story of Heidi, see if you can sit through this at some point just for the experience of this film. Its really not a film you have to decide you love or hate, its more of an experience.

I highly recommend the newer version of Heidi made in the early 1990's. Well done and Noley Thornton does a sweet job of Heidi as do Jason Robards and other supporting actors/actresses.
