Although this is region 1 and you need to make sure you have the right DVD player to watch it with, you are in for a real old fashioned treat. A 'Fairy Tale' in reality, yet the story is well made and produced with several surprises, especially at the end - no I won't tell. I love this film and will watch it again and again.

The music needs a mention too. It is perfect for such a film and helps to create the emotional state needed when being 'drawn in' to this film. Acting is superb all through, especially Bill Nighy (Brilliant) and Tim McInnerny (equally Brilliant).

A film for children, parents and grandparents to enjoy, simply wonderful.

I had never heard about this story before, but was looking for a movie to watch with young children. They loved it!!! There was nothing in it that made them be scared or worried, and I think they will gladly watch the movie again in a bit of time.

I absolutely loved this film growing up and was very happy to find a copy on DVD. However, this DVD copy appeared to be genuine on the box, but the quality of the film was not great. The picture was very grainy and pixelated! Big disappointment!

I havent got this yet but ... already know it as a Truly Wonderful family film,with Serious performances from the 'greats' like Peter O'toole,and then the whole cast,virtually each of which make themselves the 'lead actor', through deeply affecting performances. Production,Music, and a proper,beautiful ending, help me Believe...that our often brutal world, can always turn away from its manic obsessions,long enough to create a Wonder, which stays in my mind LONG after any of this Lifes dark episodes*****

Excellent cast and love the inclusion of well known people like Houdini and Conan Doyle in the story. Kids went straight out the next day to build fairy houses in the garden so it certainly captures their imagination. A really good family film, just right for a Sunday night.

A delightful film and so beautifully portrayed that I almost believed in fairies at the end. The two girls in particular were very well cast
