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.

If you have a child who has never seen a foreign film, this would be agreat one to start with! Belle and Sebastian is a French movie, byNicholas Vanier, with English subtitles.

Belle and Sebastian is about a young boy, Sebastian and the friendshiphe makes with Belle, a large dog. She is being blamed for killing thesheep in the village. In fact, the villagers call her "the beast."

The movie is set in Nazi-occupied France. There are refugees in thevillage always escaping at night over the snow-covered mountains intoSwitzerland. Sebastian is told to stay away from both this part of themountain and "the beast." But, he can't resist. He finds and tries toprotect "the beast," who he names Belle.

Sebastian meets up with Belle every day and they run in the fields andplay in the snow. He shows her places to hide from the angry villagersand from the German Nazi soldiers. She is Sebastian's friend and hebelieves that it is not her who is killing the sheep. The scenery inthis film is incredible! The snow-covered mountains, grassy hillsides,waterfalls, rocks and panoramic vistas will take your breath away.There are lots of aerial shots in the film that make you wish you livedin France.

Parents should know that there is some drinking, lying and cursing, butthe characters are trying to do their best given the givencircumstances. It can't be easy having your little village be takenover by soldiers. Over-all, the message this movie gives is a good one."Protect your friends and always try to do the right thing." Irecommend this movie for ages ten to eighteen. This is a great agelevel to introduce appreciation of sub-titled movies. I give Belle andSebastian four out of five stars for amazing scenery and great acting.

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)
