Lovely Family Movie
20 May 2012 | by (Riehen, Switzerland) – See all my reviews

My nine year old son discovered Chestnut first on cable but the movie was already in the last part. So we decided to buy it on DVD. First he watched it with his best friend. They had both tears during the running time because the story is told very lovely.

The wonderful dog Chestnut is the great star in this family film. We all spent a very entertaining evening and had to laugh a lot. Congratulations also to the director for his fine work.

The average rating here is too low and merits no doubt a higher vote. I give rarely a 10 but this time all the family voted clearly with 10 out 10.

If you have children or you are a dog fan don't miss this. You won't regret.
