A boy finds an interesting egg. His curiosity leads him to protect it and want to figure out what will come out of it. He didn't realize that it would turn into something magical. The boy and the Water horse grow a strong relationship together in this wonderful story.Written by
Miss McMorrow stated to the captain that her man is in the war in the RAF. To Lewis Mowbray she stated that his ship is sunk for a year ago. Looking at the scenery the story take place at he end of spring or begin summer 194. If Lord McMorrow is in the RAF station on a ship the only aircraft carriers sunk in 1941 were the ark royal and the Audacity but only in late 1941, November and December, If he was on one of those ship she already had received message of his missing. The Ark Royal sank in tow to Alexandria so there should be a list of died and survived personal.
The Audicety sank in December 1941 and could not be the ship he war placed on because the event was only 6 or 7 months for the story took place. See more »
There are some movies which make you smile and cry at the same time(I didn't cry). This movie is that sort of movie.
The movie starts with an old man telling the old legend of Water Horse to a couple. The story relates to a boy, who lives with his mother and sister. The military just takes over their house during the war time, and the family is forced to live with them. This boy finds a small shining stone and brings it to his house and in the morning after the stone was brought, the stone is not there, instead there are pieces of it, and there in that room a small creature is present. This is the Water Horse. The child takes care of it without raising the suspicions of his mother, but the creature grows so huge in so small time that he is forced to drop it back in the ocean.
The relationship between the creature and boy is shown well in the movie, covering all the emotional angles with panache. The direction is consistent. Although it may not blow your mind with excitement, it is a calm movie which makes one think of the nature of man. I would recommend it.
