Short, sweet, and simply - This is a fabulous family film that will have you laughing and crying at the same time. It is a film filled with old fashion family values spun in a delightful tale and is absolutely one of our family's favorite films. It is a film for children and adults alike and is clearly a "feel good", "must see" film. You can't help but enjoy this film !!!

HASH(0xa0f31aec) out of 5 stars Quite delightful Oct. 7 2005
By Elizabeth G. Melillo - Published on Amazon.com
Fine acting, wonderful scenery, and a very pleasant approach to the classic tale make this quite an enjoyable film. Though the character of Fraulein Rottenmeir is a far cry from Johanna Spyri's, as is her relationship with Herr Sessemann, this change may be appealing for those who wish to share the film with children, who might be troubled by the original.

My reason for witholding a top rating is that, as a lifelong fan of Johanna Spyri's "Heidi," I noticed that some of the key themes in the original are missing. Heidi's simple faith, and her faith's being strengthened despite the time of dreadful homesickness and mistreatment by the governess in Frankfurt, do not come through clearly. The plot has been revised so that Herr Sessemann is an uncle, Fraulein Rottenmeir a lovely lady, and Klara (in the book, a gentle sort crippled by over protectiveness) a bit of a brat. Heidi remains in Frankfurt because she feels she owes it to Klara, who tends to move her legs when Heidi angers her.

All told, nonetheless, this is a very well acted film with a great deal of charm.

HASH(0xa0f31ef4) out of 5 stars Only part of the film! March 14 2004
By B. Sullivan - Published on Amazon.com
This version of Heidi was my absolute favorite movie as a child. I have the VHS version and decided to upgrade to the DVD. I couldn't believe it when I started watching it that the first part of the film is not even included. We don't see how Heidi got to her grandfathers, met Peter or his grandmother. I don't know if it is somehow a mistake on just my movie or if they are all missing the first scenes. The quality of the rest of the film was fine and just as good as I remembered. But, if you want to see the whole film, get the VHS.

HASH(0xa10a98a0) out of 5 stars GREAT STORY...EXTREMELY POOR QUALITY DVD June 7 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This is a great story with wonderful characters and fine acting but the quality of the DVD is awful. There are scenes that are out of focus, fuzzy and choppy. Even for the great price, extremely poor quality.

HASH(0xa0f31d14) out of 5 stars lovely film; poor DVD quality Sept. 27 2003
By ieee488 - Published on Amazon.com
Very enjoyable movie marred by washed out color. The Alps are breathtaking, but you wouldn't know it from this DVD.
So, I give the movie itself 4 stars, and the DVD 1 star.

HASH(0xa0f31f00) out of 5 stars A Little-Known Treasure Sept. 23 2000
By E. Schwartz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: VHS Tape
I've never seen the Shirley Temple version of this movie and I have no interest because I know there will be pouting and the character of heidi would never pout. This version shows Heidi to be as strong-willed as her stubbern gradfather even though she has no one to care for her. Furthermore when she goes to live with her cousin Clara, the characters all go through the transition of bringing her into the family -especially well done by the actress of Clara. A number of different plot strings are developed, all of wich come together nicely at the end.
The combination of great performances in every role with great script-writing and the beautiful Alps make this movie a must for every family's shelf.
