This Jeanne Rosenberg adaptation of the timeless 1881 classic by Johanna Spyri is family entertainment at its best.

"Heidi," the classic children's novel, has finally been told on the screen the way it should be: not as fluffy Pollyanna but as a thoughtful, shaded tale of love, abandonment and reunion.

Each minute of this film is justified, embellished with breathtaking scenery of Austria and the Alps and with excellent character development.

Heidi has both tenderness and spunk.

The whole final hour, in fact, is first-rate, and the supporting cast is always interesting.

Director Michael Rhodes performs admirable period drama without going arch or artsy, and if there are moments in which Thornton's sunny Heidi edges near to cloying, they're saved by Rhodes' common sense and restraint.

Deeply touching story of a guileless young girl set against the gorgeous backdrop of the Alps. Heartfelt family films don't get any better than this.
