This high bit rate transfer does this gem of a movie proud. Beautifully written, staged, directed,designed and acted - this new veand re-imagined version of a classic story (written and directed by the director of Brideshead Revisited) is very impressive indeed. As much about class divide and social injustice as it is about canine friendship, this moving and absorbing production - blessed with awe-inspiring photography, and particularly impressive performances from the dogs and the young lad, is bound to delight many parents and youngsters too - but be aware there is some gritty realism and plenty of tearful moments on route for all concerned! The extras are a delight - particularly the training and audition sequences. Buy and "enjoy" but don't forget to have plenty of tissues on hand - you'll certainly need them - and expect more "realism" than is usual in this "children's" film which makes a clear but subtle statement about the absurd privileges and injustices inherent in the class system.

This absolutely gorgeous re-imagining of Lassie brings the story back to its roots, reclaiming Eric Knight's 1940 novel about the famously determined collie's obstacle-ridden trek from Scotland and Yorkshire to rejoin the bereft young master, whose down-on-their-luck parents were forced to sell his best friend to the rich to pay for food.

Visually sweeping, beautifully paced with some of the most understated acting I've seen, Lassie would have to be one of the most emotionally heartbreaking films to come out in recent years not just in its portrayal of this willful and loyal canine who is determined to come home, but in its comments about class and kindness and the uncertain dread that hangs over England on the eve of World War 2.

When the local coal mine closes, Yorkshire coal miner Sam Carraclough (John Lynch) and his stoic and kindly wife Sarah (Samantha Morton) have no option but to sell their son Joe's (Jonathan Mason) beloved dog Lassie to the dotty Duke of Rudling (Peter O'Toole). Spied on a foxhunt, the Duke decides this spirited girl will make a fine pet for his granddaughter Cilla (Hester Odgers) while also hoping to use her to breed some offspring.

Lassie however, has other ideas and keeps escaping from his new kennel and returning home to his beloved master Joe. Fed up, the Duke takes him all the way to Scotland where she has to endure the supervision of His Lordship's repellent kennel supervisor (Steve Pemberton).

But Cilla helps spring Lassie loose, which begins a long, perilous journey back to Yorkshire where she has lots of adventures in town and country - some good and some bad - and where she hooks up with a kindly traveling player (Peter Dinklage, doing great work here) and his lovable dog.

My son went through a phase of Lassie obsession and this is his and my favourite version. I enjoy the no-nonsense Yorkshire Englishness of this version, a refreshing change from the Hollywood type movies. I would recommend a parent watch it first in case the odd "damn" or "bloody" is not to their liking, there is also a scene of violence towards a dog that is well done by mostly implying rather actually showing anything but could upset some kids.

We first encountered this film in a holiday home we had rented, and our kids insisted on watching it every day ! We had gone to Keswick just before Christmas so we did expect a little bit of TV watching while we were away - our kids were absolutely enthralled with this, at 3 1/2 and 1 1/2 you might think them too young to know what is going on, we get lots of questions from our eldest and it is now most definitely second to Toy Story/Toy Story with our two. It's a good family film too, but to be fair after the second watching we left the kids to it (are we bad parents?)

As soon as we got home we ordered our own copy, and we fully expect it to come out every few weeks to be watched again and again

All in all, great stuff and well worth getting for anyone with young children, though expect a few difficult conversations about why some people are nasty and others not, dying, and what owning/selling an animal means

I bought this for my daughter and we sat and watched it together and both loved it. It is a surprisingly good family movie with a superb all star (mostly) British/Irish cast, including Peter O'Toole, Samantha Morton, John Lynch, Kelly MacDonald, Nicholas Lyndhurst, Robert Hardy, Edward Fox, Gregor Fisher and Steve Pemberton (The League of Gentlemen) who makes a fantastic bad guy.

It is a traditional heartwarming family story of a boy being seperated from his dog and overcoming exceptional odds and many hurdles to be re-united. It has highs and lows, beautiful scenery and some great performances. Certain to pull on the old heart strings this is one I highly recommend for all family viewing. A surprising little gem, everybody I have loaned this to has loved it but you'll need to buy some tissues as there wont be a dry eye left in the house.

Any pet lover will shed a tear at this new version of the old classic Lassie. Lassie has changed not one iota if only we all aged so gracefully. The story revolves around a young boy who loves his dog - Lassie but times get hard when his father is laid off from the mines and Lassie is subsequently sold.

The dog is shipped of to Scotland but will he's homing instinct allow him to make it back to his original home further south? Or will Lassie die along the way?

My wife loves a weepy and was crying near enough all the way through the film, where as I being so much tougher (yeah right) only shed one tear!

If you liked the old Lassie stories or if you like a weepy then this film is for you...Not my type of film as a rule but I made an exception and enjoyed it.
