Nicholas Vanier directed this adaptation of Cécile Aubry's novel(adaptation and screenplay by director Vanier with Juliette Sales andFabien Suarez) n a film that is in both French and German with Englishsubtitles. The result is a film for the heart – a reminder that duringthe atrocities of WW II there were moments of meaningful relationships,especially between animals and people (remember 'War Horse'?).

The film is set during WWII in the snowy Alps of occupied France, onthe border of Switzerland. Six year old Sébastien (Félix Bossuet),raised and adopted by his grandfather, is lonely and dreaming of theday his mother will return from America for him. He befriends anenormous yet gentle sheepdog Belle who quickly becomes his best friendand protector. With Nazis in the village rooting out the resistancefighters helping Jewish refugees cross the border, Belle andSébastien's loyalty to each other and the village that has embracedthem both will be put to the test.

The scenery is magnificent and the acting by the young and gifted FélixBossuet is extraordinary. It is a moment of devotion and love andcaring and protection during WW II that creates a strong sense ofcaring about the true meaning of friendship.

Belle and Sebastian, initially an excellent novel written by CécileAubry, has been adapted in movie by Nicolas Vanier. This beautiful andcharming story makes a perfect family movie. Children as well as adultscan enjoy it!

First, the story takes place during the WWII in the French Alps.Sebastian is a 6 year young boy, raised by his adopted grandfather.This little adventurer spends much time in the nature, playing with allit offers. One day, some sheep are found attacked. Everybody thinksthat's a cruel and dangerous animal but during a walk, Sebastian meetsthis mysterious beast. It appears that it is a dog, a so cute dog thatthe boy recalled 'Belle'. At this moment, an unequaled friendship hasjust begun. Unfortunately, the determinate grandfather and his bandhave to kill the dog. Sebastian is so hungry with it and takes care ofhis best friend in secret. The boy will prove that the dog is not a badanimal the day it saves a life.

That lovely relation between a dog and a child is really pleasant forthose who want to see a piece of sweet in this violent world period. Infact, we can also feel the strong atmosphere of occupation in thatmovie. A good point is definitely the beautiful mountainous landscapes.If you are fond of nature, you should be filled with Belle andSebastian. We also have to notice the performance of Félix Bossuet, theyoung Sebastian who's particularly effective in his role.

In a word, I really recommend you this movie, a French one, somethingdifferent than the full effects American movies. We sometimes need tosee and enjoy simple things as a true friendship.

A review of this film by a guy actually named Sébastien because hermother liked the 60's TV series so much, what a concept! So this filmis based on a children's novel by Cécile Aubry telling the story of afriendship between a young boy called Sébastien and a big white dognamed Belle living in a small French village in the mountains in 1943.Before watching the film, I was only familiar with the anime version ofthe 80's that I loved, so I cannot evaluate how faithful it is to theoriginal novel. My impression and Wikipedia tell me that a few creativefreedoms were taken. So, we hear about a "beast" in the mountainskilling sheep. Sébastien lives with his grandfather César and spendsmost of his time outdoors. It's revealed quite soon that the "beast" inquestion is actually a big dog that was beaten up by his former master,fled and became wild. Not that wild since Sébastien discovers the dogand quickly befriends her in secret, although the dog is still huntedand in constant danger of being killed by the villagers. Sébastieneventually names her "Belle" because once cleaned up, she's sobeautiful. Of course, there's also a play on the Beauty and the Beasttheme, la Belle et la Bête, that Sébastien probably never read. Notinitially related but eventually becoming important, is that France isoccupied by the Germans, and there's a clandestine operation by theFrench passing Jew refugees over the mountains to reach anothercountry. There are regular visits by the Germans in the nearby villageand they want to stop this.

So, I found the movie rather peaceful and relaxing with beautifulmountainous landscapes. Contrary to what another review says, there isa story and even a few mysteries such as what happened to Sébastien'smother, who's helping the Jews and the true motivations of a fewcharacters. I loved Belle, she was expressive and she looked like Iwhat I envisioned she should in real life. I didn't like the actorSébastien so much. Yes, he's cute, but a few times, there was a littlesomething off in the way he played. It didn't seem all natural for lackof better explanation. The relationship between him and Belle wasmostly fine, but there was some chemistry missing. I sometimes feltsome kind of "disconnect" between him and her. The other adult actorswere adequate, except for the doctor that I found bland, and the Germanlieutenant that I found more interesting than the rest. In fact, Iliked how ambiguously he was portrayed.

The animal sequences didn't particularly impress me, as it sometimesfelt as if they were filmed separately, although they were realanimals. Scenes of danger, especially the last one, felt a bitawkwardly filmed. At one point, there was a song sung by Sébastien inthe background that I found very corny, but it might be my cynicaladult side complaining. The couple of other songs sung by an adultwoman fared better, but I would have preferred just poignant musicinstead. I don't really remember the soundtrack otherwise. I wish Iwould have been moved emotionally by the film, but I wasn't really,although I found a few sequences charming. So maybe it's nostalgia forthe old cartoon talking, but for me, this adaptation, althoughcompetent enough, seemed to lack a certain magic. I'd recommend it forbig dog lovers. As an aside, my girlfriend, not familiar with thestory, liked the film much better than I did.

Rating: 6 out of 10 (good)
