A Film for Insiders
14 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I heard this film was being made, I could hardly wait to see it. I was a story artist at Disney Studios for many years and the trip to South America was that of legend. Having know Frank Thomas and an admirer of his work and that of the group that went to South America, I found the film inspiring and thoughtful. I didn't want to rush through the film and savored how it took it's time and revisited each location. I would say that if you are unfamiliar with Disney history then this film will not hold the same meaning.

I have a painting from that trip hanging in my sitting room painting by one of the Blairs. I look at it with different eyes now. I'd say as a Disney fan, it's a film I'll be watching again.
