Fantasy and philosophy
Verified purchase
I remember reading The Little Prince years ago, and after reading the reviews, decided to watch it recently. What inspired me in this movie was the artistic, symbolic, and philosophical levels it portrayed. It was a masterpiece in layered meanings. In other words, you can watch this over and over again and always get something new from it. The old man living next door was a child at heart. The little girl was old before her time. They became friends, and this friendship was very important to her because it allowed her to become a child again. As she learned about the story of the little prince who lived on a planet, we get to see him. He visits different planets and they are all small. Each planet has different people and symbolizes a different compartmentalization of life. The rose the little prince loved and protected with a glass cover symbolized what he loved, but when he deserted it and followed not his heart but left the planet to workg for others, he lost his childlike self and he lost that love. Such a meaningful movie. Although it seems intended for children, it is a true classic. Clean and fun, yet reflective. Loved it!

The Little Prince Movie Review 🤴✈⭐
Verified purchase
I love this movie! It's about friendship and childhood. The friendship between an elderly man and a little girl who believed in his story, and they made it come to life. As for childhood, life's too short to be on a "life plan". Live life with all of its obstacles, both good and bad. Not to be in a hurry to grow up, and not to lose the people and things you love. To keep the imagination alive, and to reach for the stars 🌟. Great movie for the whole family.

This movie is an act of literary heresy of Saint-Exupery’s masterpiece.

Please, do read The Little Prince before you watch this movie.

This adaptation of the book where the main character is a girl and not the Little Prince. It is an unforgivable act of political correctness. This is “The Little Princess.”

The original text is beautiful, subtle, and sublime. The Little Prince is a magical book to read many times at different stages of your life as answers are revealed to you as you grow older.

The movie reveals those “hidden” moments, and the script goes beyond the end of the book. And in doing so, it betrays both the work and the spirit of Saint-Exupery’s masterpiece.

A wonderful complement to the classic

Read the book first, then love the film. This is not a film adaptation of the book -- it's a sequel which pays dutiful tribute to the original masterpiece. This is a vehicle for continuing and expanding appreciation for the original piece.

Or watch it by itself, and enjoy the book second; that works too.

The film is suitable for most ages. Note: The film (like the book) addresses issues of death and loss, and may be a little intense for very young viewers... though the way it's presented is tasteful. Very good vehicle for introducing the topic for young children who have experienced the death of a grandparent, or who are likely to have that experience. The presentation of this subject matter seems compatible, in my opinion, with essentially any religious or philosophical view of death.

One of my favorite movies!

This movie has so many good elements! First off the animation: I loved the juxtaposition of the stop motion and the digital animation! The stop motion really makes the story telling of the Little Prince more whimsical (like an imaginary world) as a stark contrast to the main characters reality (digital) which looks more true to life (aka grown up world = practical). The voice acting is so perfect: Rachel McAdams adds such a sweet yet nervous tone for her neurotic character and every scene with Jeff Bridges is so believable and heart breaking. The main storyline itself is so strong and well done; it really holds up alongside the classical story of Le Petit Prince so kudos on the writers. The main characters are lovable and their plotlines have universality. Oh and the score is oh so charming and puts me in a good mood every time :) This movie is one of my go to movies I love to watch whenever I'm going through a rough time. As an adult watching this movie helps me remember to always have a sense of curiosity, imagination, and silliness :)

Wonderful movie, great Marketplace seller, wierd subtitle feature on this particular BluRay
Verified purchase
First of all, the Amazon Marketplace seller, MechaNinja, could not be better. Five stars plus for prompt delivery, effective packaging, and after sale support better than I would dare ask for. The movie itself also deserves 5 stars. My wife and I saw it at the Sedona Film Festival and loved it. We could not understand why the US theater release was cancelled and the film sold to Netflix, but that is what happened. One does have to get used to the lollipop proportions of the main characters, but that is a common trait in modern animations. The use of a different animation technique for the scenes that are taken from text of The Little Prince is masterful. It is a visually and spiritually rewarding film. Everybody we have showed this DVD to loved it too. Now, for the missing star ... that has to do with the packaging stating that there is an English subtitle feature. As I have very poor hearing, this is a big deal to me. However, if the spoken English version of the movie is played (also French and Cantonese are offered), only Cantonese subtitles are available! To get English subtitles, you have to watch the movie in French! I would have preferred to have the US sound track, with Jeff Bridges as The Aviator, and the subtitles as well, but this is not a choice. Never mind, I love this movie and will just watch it in French one day and by this means read the script!
