Running Time: 96
Australian Distributor: Moving Story Entertainment
Almost eighty years after the premiere of the original, there is now a German version of the famous dog story. The world collapses for 12-year-old Flo. Because his father loses his job, the family has to move. But the landlord of the new, smaller apartment does not want the dog Lassie there. So the twelve-year-old boy has to part with his darling.
However, this remake, told for the first time in German, proves that Lassie still has that charm and offers an exciting, funny and moving adventure for the whole family. The only shame is that Lassie herself appears a tad too seldom. This does not detract from the overall atmosphere though. The new film version is feel-good cinema for the whole family.
