I highly recommend this movie for all ages. It was well beyond my expectations!!! I'm in my 60's; a good friend of mine is 40; a friend has young children... its a favourite of each of us... we've each watched it many times (only a few movies have I wanted to watch more than once or twice).
Even the bonus material that introduces the makers of the film & highlights the challenges they faced in making this movie using puppets is very interesting.
This is one of the best movies about Jesus that I have ever seen. Although marketed to children, I have seen this DVD several times as an adult, and found it to be very moving emotionally and spiritually each time I saw it. The artistry, acting, and animation are all superb. But more importantly, this movie brings together the historical and religious background to the story of Jesus, such as the Roman occupation of the Jewish Holy Land at that time, and restores Jesus to His original Jewish context. This is also a tremendous bargan.
Our family really loved this movie. I saw it a decade ago and remembered it for my own kids. It is captivating to the young and older. The music is good, the voices are authentic with feeling and not overacted. Its great! The price was good enough to order more as a Christmas gift to some of our younger family members.
This movie made a lasting impression on me when I first saw it on TV several years ago. It portrays the ministry of Jesus from the viewpoint of a child who had an extraordinary encounter with Him that changed her life forever. What a great tool to help children get started on a life-long relationship with the Savior!
