There's plenty of scope for sentimental tears, but I hope most children will go away with something punchier - a longing to observe the natural world in this much detail, and a new respect for the difference between owning something, and loving it.

Jacquet's golden-hued cautionary tale is beautiful to look at. It's also accurate in the way the time frame of friendship unfolds, and is spot on in illustrating our tendency to anthropomorphise cute animals.

Film is largely just the sum of its images and, aside from a surprise ending, is more a pleasant view with charming moments than a consistently gripping narrative.
