In real-life, Denise was a lot younger than portrayed in this movie and worked in the zoo. She had no family. She died on July 17, 1997, was cremated and buried in Ardess graveyard near Kesh, County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland. A small stone elephant was placed on her grave earlier this year in memory of her actions during the Belfast Blitz. See more »
a good one for the whole family
A beautiful family drama,about a little zoo in a little village just outside belfast,nortern ireland.its an emotional story about an elephant and his human rescuers and friends during the devastating time of 2nd world war blitz-krieg phase.
it is a sweet but also sad story about love,engagement,poverty,life and death,good and evil ,made through a great filmographic,audio/visual production,and a whole lot of great young actors.even though i understand english language pretty well,the irish slang are at time hopeless to understand when spoken with low voice,anyway,the worse the dialect the better.geordie is fein..... the pace are a little slow but it gives time for recollection on wartime for the younger viewers.
