Richard Thomas stars in this amazing tale of a family looking for adventure only to find themselves marooned on a deserted island. Having no means of provision or shelter they struggled to survive against pirates, natives, wild animals and Mother Nature. A movie sure to thrill even youngest in the audience. A story about adventure, love, heartbreak, happiness and human drama, The Adventures Of Swiss Family Robinson is a great adventure for the whole family. Written by
How do you survive on a deserted island when you're used to being served? That's what this series is all about. It takes us to a normal family in Boston many years ago. Back then in Boston people aren't equal. All people have their certain place and it has to stay that way, but once the family is shipwrecked and has to fight for their lives all the rules seem to change and even disappear. They develop friendships with people who are less important than them according to Boston's standards, they have adventures, survive illnesses, find love and have experiences that changes them forever. The series is sometimes a bit naive and moralistic but in the end it has a few lessons that some people seem to forget: love and friendship stand way above all society's rules and standards. It is that lesson that made me love watching this series. It's great for children, but I'm sure some of the older members of the family will enjoy watching this too!
