Nice Try, But Falls Short
15 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this version of "Heidi" one sees a stellar cast, and enough resemblance to the book that it could have been an earnest try, but enough deviations to annoy the true "Heidi" reader. They went to the trouble of casting a girl with beautiful brown hair instead of the ridiculous blond braids too often associated with Heidi, but then don't bother to curl the hair. If they didn't want to have a hairdresser every day, they couldn't give the child a permanent before going on location? They get the exact right color of goats, then get the goats' NAMES wrong! The German names are pretty easy to pronounce, and there are always the English "Little Swan" and "Little Bear," BUT NO! The goats have to be Dusty and Daisy like they live in Wyoming or something! There are also a number of probably well-intended plot deviations, not one of which improves the movie, which is glacially slow paced. It is enough like the book to be tolerable, but not enough like to be enjoyable. Too bad because the acting, costumes, sets, and camera work are great. Foothills, but no mountain peak for this one.
