I loved it. It was better than 'Cats'. I want to see it again and again.
30 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is quite possibly the best movie ever - in the history of cinema.

Consider: this movie was produced in 1969, yet the editing and storytelling is more evocative of movies from 1914 or thereabouts - except the producers showed their sheer genius by adding the concept of 'color'.

The depth of the story in uncanny. I will try to recapture the storyline here, but there is no way I can do it justice.

1) The Alps are pretty. 2) People ski in the Alps. 3) Little Timmy broke his leg, so the other kids are trying to shovel him out of the snow. 4) There is a guy flying a plane. 5) A stereotypical fat guy refuses to do something. 6) Old people worry. 7) EVIL AVALANCHE! 8) Nothing else happens. 9) The end.

Best. Movie. Ever. Well, better than 'Pearl Harbor'.

sigh...
