15 hamsters took part in the filming each of them taking over scenes according to their preferences, abilities and personality after having been trained for them by an animal trainer. Scenes to which none of the hamster was inclined to were made by CGI. See more »
My friend Raffi- a film with humor and drama on both sides
My friend Raffi is a wonderful film for children and parents. The hamster shots are very special. Haven't seen such exciting real animal shots before. The camera work is clear and expressive. Always from the view point of the main character, who is a child and even of the hamster. That makes the story very authentic. Structure and pace of the film supports the needs of the child that struggles very hard between a woman dominated society and the loss of the father. The film is warm hearted and a must for families that like humor and drama on both sides. We are a bilingual family and saw the film with English subtitles. Hope that it will be dubbed in English.
