Awesome movie!
8 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

I could NOT WAIT to get this DVD! Being a huge fan of anything HEIDI I have several film versions in my collection. I first heard of this movie early last year (2016) when it was first released in Europe with the actors speaking German. Sadly, I don't speak German so I hoped it would come out in an English version. This is it (along with the same film dubbed in French)! It's one of the absolute best versions of HEIDI that's been made and really sticks close to the original tale by Johanna Spyri. There are some subtle changes to the story but nothing I found annoying. The little actress Anuk Steffen is absolutely perfect as the young heroine and Bruno Ganz is wonderful as Heidi's beloved Grandfather. One thing I loved was the addition of a small back story on Heidi's friend Klara, played by Isabelle Ottmann. The strict governess Fraulein Rottenmeier (Katharine Schuttler) was a delightfully comic character and I really enjoyed the performances of Peter Lohmeyer and Jella Haase as Sebastian the butler and Tinette the French maid! Young Quirin Agrippi rounds out the cast as Heidi's best friend Peter. I will be recommending this lovely film to my friends and family! Enjoy!
