A slow pace, peaceful and gentle collection of cartoons that feels like a make believe segments of Mr Rogers Neighborhood. On the surface, it's cute and simple but if you take the time you will find a profound and touching universe to dive in. Much more than toys to sell. Innocence lies in the Hundred Acre Wood.
Delightful animations. Voices wonderfully cast. Main theme is unforgettable & timeless. Ends on a bittersweet note; sweet for kids, bitter for adults. Hilarious meta jokes that you just don't catch as a kid. The stories are forced together in an artful way by the narrator, but still feel rather distinct. One scene could be rather frightening for some children. Takes "book adaptation" seriously. An absolute classic.
Accessible to both young boys and girls. This is a beautifully drawn movie inspired by the book that is beloved by generations. Basically this tells three separate stories but they are all rather good.
Gave me a very odd, almost uncanny experience of nostalgia since watching it for the first time at 29 I realised that I knew all the songs because I had an audio tape version of the film, which I listened to without the cutesy, almost crude visuals. I liked the sketchy line-work but not the character designs simplified from Milne for marketisation. Tigger looks stuffed and flopsy. Some nice meta jokes though.
