Despite the fact that this was filmed in the standard spherical format, "Filmed in Panavision" is listed in the end credits. This doesn't matter in the slightest because Panavision is a brand, not a format. See more »
When Milo is a kitten and a young adult his eyes are yellow, but when Milo becomes a bit older his eyes change to green, and then the eyes are back to yellow again. This is before the Milo ends up in the box on the river. See more »
Sometime later, during the last weeks of the long winter, Joyce was making preparations. The time was drawing near.

Okay! Remember the way to breathe?

I read once where it took the filmmakers four years to make this movie. I don't doubt it. It must have taken great patience to wait and train these animals to do some of these amazing scenes. Where have you ever seen a cat nursing on a pig or a dog hitching a ride on top of a sea turtle, etc.?
There are some incredible scenes involving a number of animals. The scenery here is pretty, too. All of the above means that adults should enjoy this as much as the kids. There is nothing offensive in this nothing....nothing.
Dudley Moore's storytelling narration is a bit annoying in the beginning but settles down and is just fine, even humorous in spots. Overall, he did a credible job. The movie is short but actually could have been better had it been trimmed another 10 minutes to about 80. If you love animals, you really have to check this film out. Even if don't, the footage is so unique it's worth a look.
