is a true FIND--kids in my family loved it, so will yours, & I thought it was very well written & produced
The Bracelet of Bordeaux is the same thing, but with the French Resistance taking place in a suburb of Houston.
Palatable to children, but with a deep message about the psychology of the Nazi rank and file and collaborators, Bracelet is a true gem. Throughout the tale, we're presented with a deep analysis of why people chose to follow Hitler.
Normally, World War II is too heavy a topic for a kids movie, but this is told in a way that tempers the horror, while still getting the story across. The heroes are flawed, and yet still every bit heroes. When the Americans come and save the day, and the French provide the means for the Nazis' defeat, by way of the titular bracelet, you can't help but cheer.
A young girl and her family move to Texas(lots of poking fun at Texas) where she befriends a french girl(?), and discovers a dognapping ring that ends up stealing their dogs. They set off to get their pooches back with the help of a magical bracelet that the french girl's grandmother used to fight the Nazi's during WWII. Whoa!
It sounds pretty heavy duty. They deal with not only the mob, punkers, and other crooks, but also with everyday stressers, e.g, the obnoxious ice cream seller, a cranky, old neighbor lady, a bully of a shop owner, insects, etc.
Everything is from a child's perspective.
The film makes fun of it all, and of course, the kids win out, but what an ordeal. It reminds me of childhood, and how the simplest things could be so exagerated and worrisome. Of course, here there are physically threatening situations with real bad guys.
As an adult, my overall review: ugh! Get me out of here!
As for my elementary aged children: they were glued to this movie and all the close-ups of the dogs, silliness, and how the girls were going to eventually triumph over the next dilemma. A big thumbs up!
Cons: Kind of weird with the Nazi thing and lots of child endangerment- even though everyone knows that everything is going to be fine.
Suggestion- to save your sanity, let the kids watch this one while you and the spouse pop in a film of choice in another room.
