Set to Sergei Prokofiev's classic orchestral composition, this Oscar-winning animated version of Peter and the Wolf contains all the ingredients of the timeless folk tale. There's the vast snowy field where Peter mustn't stray, the little Russian shack that he calls home, and of course, the hairy, big bad wolf. But British animator Suzie Templeton has brought her version alive with some memorable additions. A bad tempered fleabag of a cat and an affectionate pet duck are Peter's comrades at home, while the streets beyond his front door are full of grown-up terrors.

    Peter and the wolf
    As the forest gets whiter and whiter, this is definitely the film to see as it is bursting with laughter for all the family to enjoy especially at winter, based on the musical by Russian composer (Sergei Prokofiev).

    A couple of disadvantages that I found for this movie is that is more winter based and dosnt have words said therefore confusing and hard to follow, other than that I think it is high quality considering that it was stop motion animation. "A stop animation worth watching!" announced a viewer, sometimes it was hard to bring the story to life as the setting was sometimes unrealistic.

    On the other hand, there are plenty of advantages which top the movie off such as the seasonal music and a brilliant story line that brings a boy and animals together for life. This movie includes emotions that consist of happiness friendship and the most important of all, love. This freezing movie is guaranteed to melt your heart.

    The simple outline of the story is of a boy named Peter who is over curious about nature and wants to venture out and escape the village to get to the forest but unfortunately, it's much harder than it looks as he needs the help from his new animal friends on the way!

    Overall I think this movie is one worth watching for all the family next winter.

    This stop-motion animation is a story based on the musical by Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev.This movie , Peter and the Wolf , is directed by... The one the only! Suzie Templeton! Are you a lover for comedy and action ? Then this is the movie for you!

    This animation is mostly about a very adventurous boy called Peter! Peter lives in a little camp like location. Peter escapes from being trapped in this cold,frosty camp sight where he comes face to face with a vicious, gun metal-grey Wolf! Up to this point Peter has made two special friends a magpie with a balloon and a very dumb goose! Pointing out the saddest moment is when his little goose gets swallowed hole! One slight problem Peter runs into two very suspicious hunters who try to kill this wolf. It ends with the wolf being released to the wild. The quality is okay but not great! So let me finish this spectacular review with my personal opinion.

    In all honesty I have to say it's a terrible film and I wouldn't recommend it . My reason is because the animation is poor and they could of spent more time on it so I have to rate a 2/10!

    Do you want a film that's funny and sad at the same time? Well this movie that will get your hart racing is perfect for you.

    This movie is mainly about doing the right thing and working as a team. The story follows the young boy Peter on his journeys to get revenge on the wolf, but he did the right thing by realising the wolf.

    Peter and the wolf ha sa very confusing story line however it is very funny. On the other hand the anamation isn't the most realistic so it is hard to figure out where he is.

    All in all it is a very good movie with an amazing story line, it's a bit confusing but I knew what was happening. This movie will be enjoyed by all the family, it is worth watching,enjoy the film

    Today I watched a magnificent film called Peter and the wolf which is based on a classical piece of music from a Russian composer ,called Serzgie Prokofier.

    Peter is a poor and shy child that lives with with his elderly grandad.Although his grandad treats him like rubbish

    I don't particularly like this film : the animation is very dated ; it is hard to understand what somethings are ,also I didn't like this film : there was no talking in it

    I think this film deserves a 3 star rating : the plot of the film is very confusing ; it was not carried out as well

    If you would like to watch a film that gets you cracking with different emotions then this is the film for you. This amazing fun filled film will get you wanting to watch it all the time! This lovely film is directed by (Suzie Templeton) has been fantastic at writing this film and has added a lot of different emotions to make your mind pop. Also she has made it extremely funny and entertaining.

    One little young boy names Peter try's to get into his grandpas mysterious garden but gets caught and sadly walks away. The next day Peter comes back with a few friends ( a bird and a goose ) ,that can't actually fly. Peter goes into the house and secretly sneaks the keys for the door that leads to the garden then he quietly tip toes out of the house and into the secret garden. Peter has a few troubles whilst he is in the garden ; he lives forever happy with his bird.

    In my opinion this film is quite confusing because everything was happening so fast and I didn't understand it. By lily
