I often watch films that i saw as a kid, and i find that they are never as good the second time around. But this film is a true classic, and one that i definately recommend that you buy. It is a great family film, that will make you shed a tear if you love animals. No CGI used here, just great camera work which gives you the feeling that you are right there with them on their incredible journey. A feel good film for children and adults. Buy it now !
