A faithful adaptation of Arthur Ransome's beloved children's book, this delightful film follows the adventures of four children on holiday in the Lake District in 1929. The children sail their boat Swallow to an island where they set up camp, only to discover the island is already the territory of two local girls with their own boat, the Amazon. The Swallows and the Amazons go to war, under the watchful eye of the girls' uncle, an old sailor living on a houseboat with his parrot.

    This film was really good because it was strange that four kids could survive on an island.I liked it when the swallows did the war with the amazons.My favourite part was close to the end when the swallows and the amazons made the retired pirate walk the plank.I also liked it when Titty tricked the amazons.I liked most of the characters.I would recommend this film to everybody.
