Beautiful movie, cinematography wise. Very sad, I cried (unusual for me). A bit "overstuffed" with side stories. The trouble at the pencil factory could have been left out, as well as the childhood disappointments with the grandfather.
Overall a good family movie, not so interesting for smaller children.
I would rate it a 6 on a 1 to 10 scale.

This was a really inspiring movie. It was funny at times, uplifting at others, and sometimes even strange. (In a good way). It was such a nice story with creative ideas and concepts. Great for the entire family.

The movie seemed very short, and the plot was a little thin, so I have to think that the purpose of the movie was just to jerk every tear possible out of every parent in the audience. My wife's eyes were swollen for an hour after the show. My own were pretty wet when we left. All in all it was a good movie. My 9 yr old boy and 11 yr old girl both loved it.

A real surprise!
I take my 11 year old son to a lot of movies. I did not expect this movie to be particularly good but I was really suprised. We both loved it.
Great story - Well told.
