Unexpected Gem
3 March 2008 | by jbkatieSee all my reviews

Costumes: Fabulous Sets: Beautiful Color: Wonderful Casting: Excellent Script: Enchanting Plot: Bittersweet I stumbled upon this little movie quite by accident, and was utterly charmed and enthralled. To think that a 9-year old child wrote the book in 12 days is a marvel in itself - to know that the director did his best to remain true to the book while crafting a film that would appeal to his audience (adults) was a treat. Sly, moving, and innocent all at the same time, it's a movie I would recommend to anyone wanting a happy diversion from the rot foisted upon us on a daily basis.

The production standards are top-notch, and the acting, particularly the character of Mr. Salteena, is extremely well done.

BBC did a phenomenal job.
