"The Battle of Pareo Rock" tells the story of Jimmy, an 11-year old European boy who goes to Africa with his mother, a busy executive charged with establishing a golf resort. However, on arriving they find themselves caught up in a war situation between rival indigenous tribes fighting over the land. To his surprise, Jimmy meets the talking giraffe, Seraf, at a busy market. Seraf tells Jimmy that he cannot easily avoid this tribal battle. But together with Charita, a poor African girl, Jimmy embarks on an adventurous and magical trip through the African jungle, where they must overcome many obstacles. Fortunately they have help, not only from Seraf, but also from a precious medallion. Throughout their trip, they discover that they can only achieve their goal if they truly believe in themselves and don't let anybody or anything get in their way. Written by Anonymous

An enjoyable family film
18 July 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Perhaps it's the African setting and the beautiful locations as another commentator mentions, but my family & i were total enthralled with this film.

It was simple, spiritual and left us all with a wonderful feeling. It was timeless and if it wasn't for the cars and technology then you would struggle to know when it was set. There were some weak parts, mostly involving the adults but overall it was a wonderful story and we'd love to see the other six films for the other six continents.

At times you feel you are watching a 1960s Disney film and the dialogue is occasionally unrealistic. But as a family we were able to work past that and I could tell from my kids faces that they were captivated. My son even turned off his Nintendo DS.

Sadly there aren't many true family films about these days and it was a delight to stumble across this gem from the Netherlands.
