This review is from: The First Snow Of Winter [DVD] (DVD)
I got this for my little sister who is 10, and she absolutely loves it.
The film is about a duckling called Sean, who falls out the sky after being spooked by an aeroplane. Then, with a broken wing cannot join the other maigratory birds as they fly on southwards.
Sean meets a helpful Vole who mends his wing, gives him food, and later on, saves his life.
During the winter, Sean finds his best friend Puffy, who had also fallen out of the sky, and takes her to the safety of his Boot shelter.
This film is beautifully animated, with lovely country scenery and irish music.
The irish voice acting is well done also.
And, being under 30 minutes long, children don't get restless, as they normally do whilst watching a feature-length movie.
So it's SHORT and SWEET.
One of my sisters favourites now, and I highly recommend it to any child between the ages 4 and 12.
