4 August 2005 | by (Karaj) – See all my reviews

This story really touched my heart and I like the way story is told.

The best and most amusing scene is when the two cats try to talk to Sam with their eyes, How on earth could they make the cats act and express themselves with their eyes, thats Absolutely Fabulous!

Overall, a very entertaining and decent movie with brilliant performances down to the smallest parts and best adapted screenplay, the lovely beautiful score, most believable characters, a great film and certainly deserves more distribution and recognition.

It can be a bit disappointing sometimes as well not to see some very essential seasons of the novel in the film.

Anyway, it was a deep movie and had more interior than exterior.

Definitely Worth-viewing

(My advice: Read the novel first)
