This is ruined by two things: 1. The music. An oppressive ever present whistling, a diabolical melody is whistled at the beginning and throughout anytime there is no talking. It dictates the mood of any scene, it pervades strangles and suffocates like a weed.
2.The acting of the boy. This child cannot act, at all, it's terrible. Even when he reads his lines out he sounds like he has a learning difficulty, so he doesn't even sound like a kid reading. "Oh yayes, eat, IS myyyyyyyy, birth daaaaaaaaaaaaay, are YOU goingk to GIVE ME AYE PRESORNT, I Am wONDERING OF this NOWWOOO"
Wasted opportunity to make a film of a great book. Who the hell chose that kid and or the music! (the same person for sure (tin ear you see))
