In the scene where the snow comes through his window in his room in the attic at 13:42, the crow's feather is clearly covered quite a bit with snow in the close-up shot at 13:51. But when he picks it up at 13:54, there is no snow around. This is most readily seen in the full screen version. See more »

This youth fantasy feature contains amazing adventures, emotion, imagination and impressive production values. It takes parts here and there from C.S. Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia, J.R.R Tolkien's Lord of the Rings and J.K Rowling's Harry Potter. Breathtaking ending confrontation between the dark and light forces with outstanding array of special effects and full of witchcraft and wizardry abound. It's lavishly produced about 45 million dollars though was a flop at the box office. Spectacular production design filmed on location in Romania and adding a luxurious cinematography by Joel Ransom. Emotive and stirring musical score by Christophe Beck. The tale is based on Susan Cooper novel and screenplay by John Hodge(Transporting). The motion picture picture is regularly paced by David L Cunningham but contains some flaws and gaps. Cunningham is a good director as TV movie(Little house on the prairie,The path to P/1) as cinema(To end all wars, After).
