HEIDI

Werner Jacobs’ Heidi is a pleasant and extremely simple fairy tale, considering Spyri’s novel from which it is inspired. Nowadays, it seems to us to be a film intended almost exclusively for young and very young audiences, in which there are no real villains. Each character, therefore, is driven by personal, strong motivations that, at the end of the screening, are mercifully justified.
