Enchanting!
4 September 2008 | by diana_cSee all my reviews

I remember watching this film on TV one very cold February afternoon in the mid 80's and was very impressed. I taped it for my children who were in school at the time because like all kids they loved music and fairy tales and the fact that this was the main formula of the film I knew it was going to be a winner with them. I lost count of the number of times they enjoyed this lovely film throughout their childhood years. The magic and colour of the characters and stories was enchanting. I have recently purchased it on DVD to give to my son as a surprise for his 30th birthday so he and his young daughter can enjoy it together in the years to come.
