A Dog of Flanders
Poor but happy, young Nello and his grandfather live alone, delivering milk as a livelihood, in the outskirts of Antwerp, a city in Flanders (the Flemish or Dutch-speaking part of modern-day Belgium). They discover a beaten dog and adopt it and nurse it back to health, naming it Patrasche, the middle name of Nello's mother Mary, who died when Nello was very young. Nello's mother was a talented artist, and like his mother, he delights in drawing, and his friend Aloise is his model and greatest fan and supporter.

A great boy movie!My Movie Rating: 10 / 10
The second half of the movie is definitely better than the first. Unfortunately the director didn't seem to be paying much attention to Jesse James in one or two of the scenes with his grandfather :-/ Also of course we have the Holywood "must" of the child stars having American accents while the rest of the cast attempt authentic accents.
That said, overall, a pleasant film...Jeremy James being the best part :-)My Movie Rating: 6 / 10
