Critic Reviews for Heidi

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

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.

Family entertainment at its best.

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.

Audience Reviews for Heidi

½

One of my favourite children's story books. Heidi is an orphan manipulated by her cousin. She is sent to live with her grandfather, then taken to be a companion of a wheel chair bound girl in the city. Heart warming movie.

Sweet version of oft told tale. Robards is crusty perfection as Grandfather, Sian Phillips is a warm and wonderful Grandmama and her clothes are eye-popping. Jane Seymour starts out a perfect monster as Fraulein Rottenmeir but manages to humanize her character somewhat, she never becomes likable but not the stick figure martinet the character is usually portrayed. The rest of the cast is uniformly enjoyable and the scenery, both indoors and out, is gorgeous!
