Belle and Sebastian may also be the name of a band or an appliancebrand but this review deals with the recent French film by that name.In it, a boy and his fluffy white dog save Jewish refugees from theNazi occupation of France by leading them over the French Alps intoSwitzerland. Why don't the soldiers just follow them into unarmedSwitzerland and take back the escapees is a good question for yourhistory teacher. Beyond the honoring of true-life heroic acts taken bythe French resistance, the movie is also an excuse to film somestunning visuals in the boy's largely vertical world. Within this worldsome sad and sophisticated things happen (including a least 2double-crosses) so clearly this isn't an American children's picture.Some sad stuff happens as well but not as much as you expect for aFrench film. The acting is overwrought at times but generally very good- the dog is excellent. In short, worth taking your older children toand having them learn something.

"Belle et Sébastien" is a great family entertainment, with a beautifulstory of friendship. The needy Sébastien find his soul mate in a strayfemale dog and together they become friends during the World War II.The wonderful landscapes in the Alps are highlighted by thecinematography and the camera. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "Belle e Sebástian" ("Belle and Sebástian")
