My Side of the Mountain Reviews
Sam is a child that wants to go into the mountains and study alternative forms of survival on his own. His family asks him to wait till next year, so he runs away from home and lives in the mountains, not far from Quebec Canada, on his own researching wildlife and conducting experiments. He builds his own campground and forms friends in the wild to help him succeed.
"The idea of living inside a tree was perfect."
James B. Clarke, director of The Little Ark, And Now Miguel, Flipper, Drums of Africa, Misty, The Big Show, One Foot in Hell, The Sad Horse, and A Dog of Flanders, delivers My Side of the Mountain. The storyline for this picture is compelling and amazing. The settings and story are remarkable and I adored the way the characters were delivered.
"My training of Frightful began.'
I randomly came across this on Netflix and thought it was worthwhile and well done. I was amazed at the resources used by the kid and loved how the humans and animals interacted. I strongly recommend this picture to young adults or even to adults who forget how amazing humans survival tactics can be.
"The only way to know nature was to live with it."
I'll let you judge for yourself.
Sometimes I think about this movie at night, and I have to bite my pillow to keep from screaming in horror.
