Great Film for everyone.
1 April 1999 | by PhytonSee all my reviews

Although this film is meant for children. I think that anyone would enjoy it. It is a joyfull film about a little girl who misses her father and is sucked into a fantasy world with a real life chessboard (all very friendly). Of course there is a happy ending.
