Critic Reviews for Belle & Sebastian
Simple and charming, Belle & Sebastian is not without fault, but still has plenty of lovable traits that come together to form a warm and largely undemanding view.
It's nearly impossible to screw up a tale of friendship like this, with "Belle and Sebastian" hitting all the highlights of harmony and valor. Cute dog close-ups help too.
Look, I know it's full of clichÃ©s but it's such a delicate film. It won me over completely. It's so authentic.
Audience Reviews for Belle & Sebastian
A treacly tale of a boy and a dog. The movie falls back regularly on animal endangerment to trigger audience sympathy. Always an effective ploy. There are a number of implausibilities in the movie but the most laughable is when the boy takes the filthy grey bedraggled dog to bathe in a stream and it emerges from the water shampooed, groomed, and blow dried; an Adonis of a dog. For all that it's not a terrible movie; it has great scenery, appealing actors, and a number of charming scenes. It just doesn't venture beyond that.
Enchanting and endearing, both grey scraggly beasts. Nice soothing cinematography that's a delight from start to finish.
