Wonderful classic for children and parents
18 October 2006 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I just recently saw Urmel again with my 'little one' almost 40 years after it had enchanted my childhood, respectively parts thereof, and I can firmly say: It did not loose anything! The characters are extremely lovable, even those whom you dislike are not real villains as in many children's stories and fairy tales. There are for all practical purposes no special effects at all, but that does not affect the movie at all. It derives its magic from completely different sources; it touches the heart. Compared to today's children's movies (and more so adult movies) everything happens at an incredibly low speed. One takes time to develop the characters and to have a relationship with them.
