It's really more of a kid's movie, there's not much here for a mature viewer - unless you want to feed the child inside of you (I mean that in a metaphorical way, if you're pregnant, don't go feeding your unborn baby DVDs, they're not very nutritious!).
The movies biggest strength is the wide-eyed wonder of it all. The unashamedly fantastical nature of everything. It's not realistic, it's not believeable, but there is genuine magic to some of the concepts here, and they are all quite original.
Also, unlike most fantasy stories aimed at kids, this movie isn't afraid to confront you with some disturbing moments. One moment in particular, even watching this as a more mature viewer, is still desperately sad - but an undeniably potent piece of storytelling.
One of the '80s better fantasy films.
Giorgio Moroder, composer for big tunes such as `I Feel Love' & `Flash dance', and other soundtracks such as Top Gun & Metropolis, produced the great soundtrack for this movie.
I still enjoy this film, as it is a great story with true morals.
As of this present time (30th March 2008) this film is unavailable in Region 2 format officially and as far as I can tell there are no plans to release it in the UK although it has been available in Region 1 for quite some time. The Region 1 version is in 4:3 format so you lose quite a lot of the beautiful and rich visuals of the original.
The soundtrack which accompanies this film is also very beautiful and has to be credited to both Giorgio Moroder & Klaus Doldinger. It's not that easy to come by on CD, but it does exist and is a work of art in itself.
Hopefully, the Region 2 DVD will be forthcoming and so we can all enjoy this fascinating story once more.
this is the american version of the film.
but it has a nice 5.1 mix sound.
