Quotes

[Heidi's grandfather just reads a letter about Heidi from Herr Sesemann]
Grandfather: You think you can just drop her into my life then take her away again? I won't allow it! She can't stay here.
Dete: She's got to, she's your granddaughter.
Grandfather: NO! I don't have a granddaughter, not anymore.
Dete: Well you can't do this, what am I supposed to tell Herr Sesemann?
Grandfather: Tell him that this is not a boarding house and tell him to keep his stinking money!

Beautiful film
17 November 2017 | by mikec-50782See all my reviews

I always find it interesting how one film can produce such a range of reviews. The reviews for this film, range from a beautifully acted, heartwarming film, suitable for all the family down to absolute rubbish, badly acted and not suitable for under 10's. I personally loved it. I haven't read the book although I am familiar with the story. I found the film moving and was well acted. OK, there are a mixture of accents in the film, but so what. Once you get into the story you wont even notice. For me this film, had the same sort of atmosphere as 'The Secret Garden'. A lovely story. Touching and heartwarming. The acting is good and the scenery magnificent. Watch it and make your own mind up. I am sure you wont be disappointed. Mike
