Five stars are simply not enough!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tales Of Beatrix Potter [DVD]  (DVD)
I saw this film when I was little, and have never forgotten the utter enchantment of it. Now I have rediscovered the bliss of it all over again with my two year old daughter. She simply can't get enough of it - in particular, the Jeremy Fisher section - those thrilling leaps and elevations! The drama of his struggle with the trout! John Lanchberry's score, and Frederick Ashton's choreography are both so wonderful - as are all the performances. But what is most striking, 30 years on, is that the production hasn't aged a bit, and I doubt that the miraculously authentic masks and costumes could be bettered now. A glorious achievement, and every bit as uplifting for adults as for children.

Thank you, I agree. I remember watching this when I was a child at the cinema and I have never forgotten how enthralled I was. I was devastated at The End and cried and cried in my seat and wouldn't move!
