4.0 out of 5 stars Heidi .., 6 Dec. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Heidi [DVD] (DVD)
I have just bought the film of Heidi as a present for my grandaughters. I decided to pre-view this before giving it and I found it to be a lovely film, but not at all suitable for younger viewers. The acting was good and the scenery suberb, but the story line not as accurate as I would have liked and some scenes were quite unsuitable for younger children.
Prefer the original story as the book.

thanks for your helpful review.
it would be really useful to expand on what you felt unsuitable for younger viewers so that parents can decide if it is suitable for their "young-ish" children. many thanks.

What makes the movie unsuitable for younger viewers? I have 2 daughters aged 5 & 8 and would like to buy a dvd of the Heidi story to share with them. I remember seeing Heidi as a child and do not remember any unsuitable instances, but it was a long time ago. Please elaborate as I am struggling to make up my mind between this dvd and another. Thank you.

I saw this when I was small, and I have no idea why it is "unsuitable for younger viewers". Sure, there are some scenes which are mildly distressing from an emotional point of view, but so is life. I never read the book but I really enjoyed the film and it made me want to move to Switzerland...
