Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

Anyone, of any age, who has ever been won over by the wonderful sheep pig Babe should immediately tick off this Japanese live-action animal tale as essential viewing. Owing a huge debt to Disney's 1963 film The Incredible Journey, this is far superior to the studio's own 1993 remake Homeward Bound: the Incredible Journey, as the cat and dog of the title don't "speak" for themselves, making their perilous exploits seem all the more thrilling. Dudley Moore might not have been everyone's choice as narrator, but his lively voiceover gives the action sequences a bit more bite and prevents the gentler moments lapsing into whimsy.
