Storyline

A prequel to the 1979 classic The Black Stallion--a family drama that presents the horse's adventures with a young girl named Neera, who has been separated from her father in Arabia by WWII. Left alone in the desert, she befriends the wild colt whom she names Shetan. Once reunited with her father, however, Neera remains haunted by the images of the lost horse in the desert--one of a few stallions of legend, rumored to be born of the sands, sired by the night sky, drinkers of the wind. Written by Sujit R. Varma

Beautiful
25 August 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Young Black Stallion is not I agree as good as the original(the best) and the film that followed after that. It does take too long to start with and it is much too short, I also got the sense the film was over too soon. However, it is beautifully filmed and has a nice score. The scripting is mostly nice and sweet without feeling too sentimental and the story is very touching on the most part. The acting is good enough, with the girl and the horse particularly believable.

All in all, I liked the movie. The original will always be the best to me and I would have loved the film to have been longer by perhaps extending the training sequence and the beginning to have not taken as long, however I found it overall beautiful and sweet. 8/10 Bethany Cox
