My girlfriend and I watched this movie and we both agree that it is soooooo much better than the original "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory". I think that the animation is much more realistic and it looks very real. The only thing that is not great is the acting, but I think it's mostly due to the fact that the actors have to learn a new language and it takes them a while to learn it. Also the plot is rather confusing and not very well developed, but it's not a bad thing as it's not the main focus of the movie. Overall, I think that it's a very good movie. I rate it 9/10.

This film is really good. It has a great story, the characters are interesting and even the animals are adorable. The story is very moving, touching and the scenes are perfect. It is a really funny film, but at the same time has a very emotional story. I recommend this movie to anyone who likes a good animated film, it is really a must see.

Not a book, not a movie, but it's beautiful. I felt I was watching the movie of my childhood. It is not perfect. It is slow, but it is very well done. It is hard to understand what is going on. I have no idea how the children feel about this. This is a hard movie to understand. But you have to give yourself over to it, because it is very important for young kids. The music is great, and it does not sound like it was made in the early 90's. There is something so much personal, it makes you feel like you were there. It is not a perfect movie. I did not think it was. I am glad I did not go to the cinema and see it. I think it is worth a watch, even though it is not perfect.

After all these years I'm still stunned how much I liked this movie. In fact I'm still waiting for a movie to make me cry. But then I remember, I watched the movie in my childhood when I was five years old, and I didn't cry. The movie is really sad and heartbreaking, and the message is about giving your all to your family and supporting your family and getting rid of hatred. And of course, the story is very heartwarming, and I don't think anyone can have a happy ending like this. The actors are really good, especially the kid who plays the role of the boy, and the mother, and the priest. The movie is very emotional and funny at the same time, and it's a good way to spend some time. One of the most important things I learned from the movie is that, if you care about your family, your family will care about you. But in this case, the main character of the movie is his family, and I liked the way the movie was shot, and the way the story was told. I wish I had my childhood back. Good job.

My children are old enough to understand the "myth" of the Holocaust, and they grew up during the years of the holocaust. In fact, my oldest child is now in college, and we were exposed to anti-Semitic propaganda. So I wasn't surprised that they were less than enthralled with the film. However, I was shocked to find that they did find it engaging and funny. It is also a visually appealing film. In fact, my youngest child looked at the screen with his father, and he was moved to tears at one point. Overall, I would say that it is a good movie for young children, but it would be appropriate for adults as well. My oldest child liked the idea of the humans in the film, and he was happy to see that some humans were "good" and others were "bad." My youngest liked the fact that humans were the main characters, and she felt that they had a good side and a bad side. My son's favorite part of the film was when his father is told that humans had been destroyed by the Germans and that the Jews had a special place in heaven. It was great to see that both children liked the movie and they were happy to see that a little bit of history was made. They were also happy to see that the Germans and the Nazis had been defeated.

I was born in the 60's. I'm in my early 20's now. This movie has changed my life. I would recommend it to anyone who's into the animal kingdom. It's a great way to spend time with the kids.

I am a 16 year old student and I just finished watching this movie for the first time. I was not expecting a great movie but this is a very good movie. This is a story about a boy who's parents die and he is the only survivor of his family. He is told by his old friend, the two of them go to the village to find food. They find food but their carriage breaks down and they run away from the village to a faraway place. They come back home and are not very happy with their homes, they are hungry and bored. But the people of the village help them and show them a better way to live. I recommend this movie to all the kids and adults that will like it. This is a very good movie.

I can't help but be amazed by the power of this film. The story, the acting, the direction, the cinematography, the way they were able to make it all fit together and what they had to say to everyone, it was everything. What more could a director ask for? This is not a one note movie, it's a story about people, a story about how they can reach out and reach out to others. It has some violent scenes, and some scenes that are sad, but it has some that are uplifting. I had a lot of emotion when I watched this, it was sad, and I cried, but it also was uplifting. The story was inspiring, and I could not help but feel sad at the end, and I wanted to feel the same way, I wanted to give someone a hug, I wanted to know that they were okay, and it's a movie about this, a film about this. I have never seen a movie about these things in a longer time, and I feel a little depressed. It was so inspiring, I hope that the Academy Awards will recognize this for the outstanding movie that it is, I really hope that they will.

If you have an ounce of intelligence, you will not be able to avoid the emotion you will feel watching this film. My own children and I have been following this movie, with or without subtitles. Many times we were surprised by how much we enjoyed the movie. The production, the story and the acting are the best I have ever seen. This film will stay with you for a long time. I can't tell you how many times I have been surprised by a detail in the movie. It is so true and true to life that it is very touching. It was so sad that I left the movie feeling depressed. I had to put this movie on my 'must watch list'. The most disturbing thing is that in the midst of this story, the characters are not only portrayed as heroes, but they are portrayed as beautiful, interesting, innocent and heroic. This is a movie that you must see, but not if you have an emotional attachment to it.

I saw this film last night with my little girl. She loved it, but I didn't. I have a hard time understanding the big raves for this film. The main reason is the story. The film is a picture of life in WW2 and it's grim reality. The fact that the girl is a child, in a war-torn country, gives it a darker edge. The film also has a very powerful message. But, I think the best part of the film is that the characters, the characters of the film, are well-drawn. In the beginning the characters are obviously drawn for comic relief, but the more you learn about them, the more you find out about their personalities and their lives. You see that these are people, and not just caricatures. As a kid, I had the same experience watching "The Gift". I was very drawn to the characters, and their personalities. When the film ended, I just sat there in awe. I was amazed at how believable they were. But it was more than just that. It was the simple and poignant way that the characters were drawn, it was the fact that they were drawn in a way that was very real. That they were human. They weren't cartoon characters. It was just the way they were drawn. It was just very well done. And the fact that the character were drawn realistically also gave it a special poignancy. I didn't expect that. The message was simply the truth. It was simple and strong. And it was clear and powerful. And the fact that the story was told through animation, gave it an even more powerful and realistic feel. I think this is a very powerful film, but I didn't really like it. I just felt that it was too slow, and it was very slow, and I didn't really like that it was. But it was still an excellent film. I recommend it.

I must admit that I watched this movie only after I saw the movie "Brave" (2014) and I thought the movie was absolutely brilliant. The movie "Brave" showed the so called heroism and the inhumanity of war, but in this movie it was actually the other way around. The movie "Breadwinner" was another step for the human beings who have to suffer in war. The movie shows the heroism of a girl named Trina who is a refugee from war-torn Yugoslavia, she is actually a human being with her own feelings, she does not want to be a refugee, she wants to return to her home town and to start a new life. There are no other options for her. So she has to overcome her fear and the uncertainty about the future of her family. I have to admit that the story line is kind of familiar, but the movie is very unique. The movie is definitely a good movie for kids and for adults too, because it shows the feelings of war and of refugees. If you think that this movie is only for kids, you are wrong. There is no wrong message in this movie, you will laugh and you will cry. The movie is for everybody. In the end I would say that it is one of the best movie I have seen this year. The movie is brilliant and it's going to be a very good movie. I give this movie a 9 out of 10.

I saw this movie at a special screening in L.A. It was a very moving movie. The story of a little girl, who is saved by a soldier, and then have to live with a little brother. The movie is amazing. The best part is when you see the soldier's family. They are not like the military. They are really happy. The kid is not a bad person. They are just like you and me. There is a part in the movie that is very sad. I would recommend this movie to all people who have a family or they would like to see a movie about a family. This movie is not for little kids. It has a lot of family scenes. This movie will keep you in tears. There is a part in the movie when the little brother is singing and everyone is laughing at him. It is sad, but you have to see it to understand.

This is a beautiful and touching story about friendship, courage, and sacrifice. It is uplifting and very well written. The movie is about the idea that not everyone has a chance to succeed and that everyone can succeed if they put their mind to it. This is an excellent story and movie about family, friendship, and the importance of taking chances. The message that the movie conveys is one that anyone can learn from. The movie is very well done and it is a must see for all children and adults.

If you're not in the mood to watch an animated film.then don't watch this. If you like animated films, watch this. I had heard good things about this film and thought it would be entertaining. I thought I was going to like this movie but it didn't do anything for me. It is just too predictable and you know the ending very early on in the film. The story is very well done but it is a bit corny. I was expecting something new and that wasn't the case. My favorite part was when Jack is captured. It was funny and just the right amount of sad to make you laugh. I don't know if it was the same for everyone but it was a good feeling. I did like the story and I like the animation. I don't think this is going to win any Oscars but it is entertaining and entertaining is good enough for me. The characters are very likable and the main characters are very cute. I would give this a 6 or 7 out of 10.

I had never heard of this movie until my 7 year old niece suggested it. I'm a huge fan of Pixar movies, and had been looking forward to seeing this movie ever since. I think the animation was top notch, and the story was just as good. I thought the story was great, and not just about war, but about the sacrifices that young people must make in order to serve their country. I was extremely impressed with this movie, and would recommend it to anyone who is a fan of Pixar. Great movie!

I just watched the movie for the first time and I really enjoyed it. Although the story was not original it was very creative and was a good story and plot. The characters were very well developed and each character was interesting in some way. They all had different qualities and a little bit of humor in them. I loved the setting and the characters are very interesting and memorable. I found myself looking at the characters as I was watching the movie. This is a movie that I would watch again and again and it is an important movie to people that love the movie. I recommend this movie to anyone.

With two kids and a husband who served, this movie was all about family and about sharing the values that we have in our home. This movie is definitely a favorite among my kids, who love to share their thoughts about it. It's about honor, love, and how to show your self respect. I would recommend this movie to anyone, especially parents who need a break from their busy life.

I watched this film the other day on Sky, and I was very much looking forward to it. After all, it is one of the best animated films of the year, and also one of my favourite Disney films of all time. However, I was very disappointed. The film is at its best when it deals with the story of its protagonist, Mia. Her emotions are complex, as are her personalities. It is interesting to watch how she handles a situation. But there are many times where the film just goes off on a tangent. It's like it was trying to convey too much information to the viewer, and it didn't do a good job. Another example of this is when the film goes to look at the mind of a child. The emotions of the child are all over the place, and it doesn't really feel like they are able to convey the message of the story. The acting is really good in this film. However, it was one of the weaker parts of the film. I found the singing of Ellen Page to be boring, and the story really didn't have a lot of dramatic moments. So, I was very disappointed in this film. But if you are a fan of the animated Disney films, you will most likely enjoy it.

What can I say about this movie? I am surprised how well the animation is done. The plot is interesting, I liked the characters. I think the movie was very inspiring, I hope it will be better and also on the DVD.

This movie is a heartwarming story about the beginning of a family's difficult journey to rebuild after the devastation of the Vietnam War. The family comes to the United States as refugees fleeing from the country that had been the source of the Vietnam War, Laos. As a refugee, the family is confronted with two problems: finding a place to live, and finding food. The hardships of the family are made evident when they come across the still active (and in some cases, still fighting) Laos War. While they are in Laos, the family is able to purchase food and learn about how to make and eat Vietnamese noodle soup. The story is quite moving, and shows the strength of a family's determination to rebuild their home. The story of a family in the Vietnam War has a lot to teach the young and old. In a way, this story is a warning to young and old to not let the world see your life and see what you have done for your country. I highly recommend this movie.
