PLEASING FILM
31 August 1999 | by (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Another of those well-made children's film the East German DEFA was famed for. Nice cast - Hans-Peter Minetti is very fine as the Ghost of the Mountains - good direction and set design make a pleasing film for all ages, though the often used and monotonous Pan-pipe (at least it sounded to me as a Pan-pipe) was getting on my nerves after a while.
