28 April 2019 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

A charming friendship story, a love story, good acting, supernatural events, humor and magic and few sadness and the perfect end. A film for entire family, inspired by an Australian legend. It is difficult to say more because it is one of films with precise purpose , precise target and precise...dog. So, a charming film. And the best part , for me, remains the great Australian landscapes.
