Thoroughly enjoyable "children's" movie
28 July 2019 | by CabbageCustardSee all my reviews

I really liked this movie. It is well acted, looks good, and has enough plot twists to keep both adults and kids engrossed till the very end. This is definitely a cut above many kids' movies. Nothing was dumbed down. Congratulations for crediting children with having intelligence and not going down the path followed by Nickelodeon and a number of recent Disney movies. The only complaint I had about the copy of this I watched was that it had been dubbed into English. I find it a bit unsettling when the words spoken and the speaker's lips are definitely not in sync. To be fair though, I guess the dubbing is more suitable than subtitles for young ones. Once I got over that one annoyance, I found myself really enjoying this. I was on the edge of my seat on a few occasions. A word of caution to parents though: this movie deals with a young boy investigating the mysterious death of a young girl over 40 years before. Some parents may find that subject matter unsuitable for younger kids. There is nothing morbid or inappropriate in how the matter is handled though, and if your kids can handle Harry Potter they will have no trouble with this. In short, a really superior movie.
