Rejected. It's an amazingly hilarious and creative 9 minute animated movie.

Considering the talent involved : Herzog (director), Christian Bale (star) it was a little dissapointing. Certainly not bad but a lot tamer than what I hoped for and the ending sucked big time.

Clerks, can't believe it's taken me so long to get around to watching this. Has to be one of the funniest movies I've seen in a long time

After the brilliance of 'Spirited Away' this seemed to be lacking a certain something. Pace definitely but still gorgeous to look at.

I thought it was much better than Spirited away...Princess Mononoke is still my favorite of Miyazaki...



I haven't seen a single film in the past 2 and a half months so this was quite refreshing. I actually managed to sit still for an hour and 40-ish minutes. It's a rather charming french Canadian flick from 1971 about the life in a small Canadian village during a few days around Christmas, sometime in the 1940's. I enjoyed it quite a bit.

7/10

Having read the brilliant and moving book of the same title on holiday, I was eager to see the film.
I was led to believe the movie was true to the novel and as far as the dialogue was concerned it was virtually verbatim to the letter.
Still, I couldn't help but feel disappointed. Whether or not I'd watched the film so close after reading the book may have something to do with it, so an accurate opinion of how the film rates is hard for me to judge.
My biggest gripe was that huge chunks of the book had been omitted from the early part of the film that dealt with the relationship of the two friends during childhood. In my opinion a bad mistake, because the bond between the boys is crucial to the plot.
The overall impression of watching the film left me with the feeling I'd speed read the book having flicked through some of the more interesting parts concerning character development.
Still a wonderful story of friendship, loyalty, betrayal, guilt and redemption.
8/10.
