Excellent
18 March 2009 | by (France) – See all my reviews

You have to be pretty stupid to give a children's movie a low score (for Christ's sake, it's for kids, right?). But to give a low score for a REALLY GOOD kids movie, you must have an exceptionally low IQ (and/or deficient imagination).

Well, this is a REALLY GOOD kids movie. It is about loss, magic, adventure, friendship, etc etc... I was totally into it right to the end, along with my three year old daughter. (Who in retrospect, was probably a little too young since it does get a bit heavy, at times).

The story is fantastic, the photography was beautiful, yet subtle and the casting was pretty much spot on.

Not on Netflix as of March 2009, but definitely worth viewing, if you can find it.
