Decent adaptation

Decent adaptation

Overall quite well done. The costumes and settings are nicely done. And of course, the presence of the national hero among the local actors, Bruno Ganz, also contributed positively to this movie.

However, I think the filmmakers relied a bit much on the here so called Jöö effect (=cuteness factor) with the presence (alone) of the cute girl representing Heidi. I noticed also some unnecessary overuse of background music in some parts. The movie goes conform with the (overly?) "positive" basic mood of Disney movies. Not to criticize, given the targeted audience, youth and children. But often, as here, it does not add that much to the depth of the story. But the acting of the two youngsters representing Heidi and Geissenpeter is remarkable indeed, given that apparently they appeared on screen the first time.

Nevertheless, IMO a bit overrated with 7.5 at the moment.
