5.0 out of 5 stars Mist the Sheepdog Puppy, Lessons in Life Oct. 14 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Although this story is probably aimed at younger viewers, nevertheless, we enjoyed it immensely. We love good stories about dogs, particularly hunting dogs, because we have two Golden Retrievers. By clever use of allegory, Brian Blessed, the author, teaches children about the inevitability of death. It's done in a gentle way and by using the plot intelligently. He also shows them that adults can be jealous and may try to keep a young person from succeeding, but that it's better to try to be helpful to the jealous adult rather than looking for a way to get even. We recommend this video highly, not only for the life lessons it teaches, but for the reality of the setting, and the story itself.

The movie is live action with real animals, and added human voices as the animlas speaking. Very very cute and adorable. Our family loved it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful "Old-Fashioned" Film for Kids of all Ages....... July 26 2008
By The Jaundiced Eye - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I watched this movie because I love animals and wanted a break from the violence and gore of most recent releases. It is an oasis of good, clean family entertainment in a market where such products are increasingly rare.

The movie revolves around a border collie puppy born on a spectacularly beautiful sheep ranch near the ocean in the British Isles. As the puppy grows up, there is a question as to whether she can prove herself to be a talented sheep-herder and earn the right to stay with her family. An unusual, and rather old-fashioned, feature of this movie is that while the animal "stars" speak to each other in unique voices, there is no computer-assisted mouth movement or other modern CGI features generally associated with movies such as this. The actions (and accents) of the dogs, sheep, and ducks all fit who they are and what they are doing and saying, and the individual personalities of each animal become well developed. Kids will love this. Parents will too.

The plot contains some suspense, danger, humor, and (warning) the inevitable tear-jerking moment when one of the dogs dies of old age (very nicely handled). The scenery is magnificent, as is the photography, and the script, while a wee bit juvenile, is still better than scripts found in many "adult" movies.

If you have young children and want to do them (and yourself) a big favor, rent or buy this DVD. It is not as glossy as a Disney feature, but has an old-style beauty that simply glows. You will come to love Mist.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful Movie that Brings a Quiet Joy May 21 2008
By Phyllis Staff - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Mist makes the list of my favorite family movies. Just enough conflict to keep it interesting, but no violence, no crude language, no cartoon characters, none of the double entendres you don't want to have to explain to children.

Mist is a sheepdog puppy who grows up in this film and learns the rules of being a good sheepdog. She exemplifies the power of focus, courage, and attention, and gently teaches those lessons. Added to this is a setting that will calm your spirit, and photography that shimmers.

Mist gently lifts your spirit. I highly recommend it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fine photography, family friendly film June 17 2008
By Melissa Rivers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Life from puppies'-eye view, learning the lessons of growing into a fine working sheepdog. No controversy to speak of, just a feel-good story in a lovely setting, with a few good belly laughs thrown in for good measure. One of the best family-friendly films I've come across.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect animal movie Sept. 5 2008
By Janet L. Robinson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Not only is the cover cute, but the content is excellent! The photography makes you feel as though you're there in person watching as another dog would watch and the accent is not a problem for most people and reflects the British Isles setting. There's a scene where puppies are born, so it is great to introduce children to birth. Absolutely adorable....absolutely delightful!
