I watched this on bank holiday Monday on ITV and I personally didnt think it would be good! However I found myself staying tuned and watched the whole movie! I refused to move, even when the adverts came on!
I loved Bill Travers acting and found Mij the otter entertaining! They really worked well together and Virginia McKenna as the Scotish village doctor was stunning.
I enjoyed the soundtrack and the locations of the movie were breath taking and this film has dug itself into my heart. It pulled at my heart strings and make me laugh and almost shed a tear.
Please try and see this classic, its one of those films, that still to this day will be enjoyed by audiences young and old!

A story about a man and his love for an sea otter, Midge, who gets upto all kinds of mischief around the surrounding country side. Pefect watching for lazy days! This is a story for animal lovers everywhere.

I remember the film as being beautifully shot and a gentle, probably a bit wimpy and sentimental story (nothing really wrong with that). However, I saw this on one of the rare occasions a film projector was brought into school in the 70s - we were only about 8 years old. THAT scene (I won't spoil it for those who haven't seen it) and its effect on an 8 year old boy (ie me!) has stayed with me always and I've never been able to watch it again!

A good film and recommended. Just don't have your kids there watching it without a box of tissues handy!

Gentle quiet atmospheric film with some extradinary happenings.
Natural history and scottish highlands, good to clear your head..breathe that fresh air and drink that crystal water.
Boys 7,10 really enjoyed this film. I had seen it many years ago as childhood memories of it have lingered.
Beautiful haunting theme tune brings a tear to one's eye.
Could watch again, maybe a childhood family classic

the main film has been re-digitalized and is both sound and sight perfect. The interviews after the film use 'flash back' to support comments made by the producer...and these flashbacks are NOT re-digitalized (yellowy and spotted) and you then realise how marvellous the "new" film is now.

Fast moving with awesome Scottish landscapes, great classical music and engaging characters all brought together by a otter who is saved from a pet shop in London and in the process returns us to the freedom of the sky and the sea.

I cry every time I watch this, it just gets to me! A great film for all the family although it is a bit sad but with a happy ending. Good to watch on a rainy afternoon.

Basically this film is about "Mij". Mij is an otter. This is actually a true story. The author of the book had retired to the west of Scotland and a wild otter soon be friended and interacted with him. He started to record the events which happend. Those records then became the book.

So the film is based on the "real" Mij. The otter in the film is not the real Mij.

This film is a delight, it will bring both tears and joy.

Well worth the money.
