This is a spectacular family film. In it's original language there is a nuance of multiple languages blending so if you can stand subtitles with the actual voices of the actors I highly recommend it for adults and children old enough to keep up.
Things to understand:
It's not a modern action children's movie with a defined villain although some actions in the film on the part of some characters can be seen as villainous or dark. The entire movie focuses on real life personality drama rather than mechanized drama.
It's not a Disney or typical family film format with unintelligent people characterizations made simple and obvious. While themes are simple enough for children, they are handled in a more subtle real way.
It may contain some classic clichés about conditions and illnesses among children which it is up to the viewer to determine the merit of.
It's an absolutely beautiful film that seems to portray a real world rather than a polished one which is actually refreshing. Period mud streets and dirty feet with a contrast between simple mountain life and prim proper city life.
