So cute and lovable!, 2 June 2007 9/10
Author: Mightyzebra from Scotland
Genre: Non-animated family film set on a farm with sheepdogs.
Why I like it: This is one of my new TOP TEN favourite films! It is SO good for a modern film, I prefer it to a lot of the stuff that comes up in the cinemas nowadays. It should have an overall rating on this site!
What it ALL adds up to: Absolute cuteness+a CREEPY baddie+a good storyline + the fact that the sheepdogs' mouths don't move when they talk + lovely characters + good music + Good English accents/voices = this lovely and enjoyable motion picture!
I recommend it to all Sheepdog fans, English-film fans, people who are frustrated by CGI mouths and people who like funny films! ENJOY! :)
What happens: From the moment she sees the woolly creatures, Mist wants to become a real sheepdog. However, THAT will mean putting up with Fern and being trained by Sir Gregory...
P.S I'm the first person to review this. That has NEVER happened before...
