Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

A wonderful film with stunning photography. The heroine was a very appealing child with a sweet face - and she was the actual girl who trained the eagle. A lovely story.

Great response to this. Heartwarming, charming, enjoyed the relationship between father and daughter and what fantastic scenery!

Excellent film, thoroughly enjoyed by all who came. Sub-titles a bit tricky to read.
