Enchanting movie with great creativity
16 February 2001 | by StevieASee all my reviews

I saw this at the Sedona film festival in 97 and found it captivating. Esmé Lammers has put together movie young and old will never forget. My only sadness is not being able to share this movie with my children, as it does not appear to be available to buy even though it has received many awards. What a shame that so many may never see a film that is truly magical. If anyone knows how to buy this on video please post it here.
