For children, it is a must see! A magical "Romeo & Juliet" with a happier ending.
7 October 2002 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I think that this was a great movie. My daughter (4) and I have rented it several times. It makes you want to be a kid again and to believe that there really is a magical world that exists. That this world exists in the here and now.
