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.

    I didn't love it or hate it, but I'm an action type person. As it was made in 1974 it obviously would have been action in those days but now its quite boring-we talked about this at the end of the session. I think it is clever how they made it and easily makes its way to your heart, so try it out and see what you think, but I just personally (recapping on the action part) found it boring.

    This was a good film but not how I would usually review it. This film was made in 1974,yes. But they really needed to know the definition of "action" in the way we do in the 21st century. Personnally this is not a film I'd like to watch again.
