Sweet (mostly) and cute
19 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First review here- forgive me if it's not the greatest. I became an Augustus Prew fan after discovering him in Animals by Marçal Forés. Unfortunately some of his roles are from films in other regions, and Sophie is one of the few I could get my hands on.

Brittany Bristow does a good job playing the outspoken Sophie, whom will stop at nothing to help her beloved friend Sheeba the elephant. Following her to the circus she had been sold to, she makes a deal with the new owner- work in exchange to earn Sheeba back. While everyone performed well, Sophie's mother has a hard time convincing me that she has acted for awhile. She just annoyed me for some reason. Bristow does a good job although at times a little cheesy with her lines, and the same goes for Erica Durance (playing a silks performer), when she sort of yells at someone.

As a former dancer, I wished that Bristow would've done so a little more. She is very talented in this regard and I enjoyed watching the few moments that she did. Her interaction with Sheeba was great and it is obvious that the two developed a bond while preparing before filming began. She states this in an interview as well.

The soundtrack also had some cute songs in it. I don't know why this film has received such low ratings. Don't get me wrong- it's definitely no masterpiece, but overall I found it to be pleasant. Animals stuck in a circus or a zoo make me a little depressed, but the movie ending and message is redeeming. I could've done without a certain sad moment in the film but I understand, it was needed for drama, I guess...

I have a feeling we will be seeing a lot more of Mr. Prew in the future, and for this I am VERY excited.
