Very nice drawing!

I love the movie as well, but even more the book - did you read the book? - though this movie is very true to the book.

I did read the book, although I saw the movie when I was around six years old, and didn't read the book until I was in my 20s. I think they did a very good job figuring out the elements from the written story that translated best into the visual medium, but I agree that the book does add a lot more depth.

I had it the same with movie and the book! I saw the movie few times as a child and teen and noticed it was based on the book so searched for the book since then, though I actually couldn't read it earlier because it wasn't published in our country before the end of 90's (and I didn't buy online from abroad at the time. Well, we hardly learned about internet at the time).

Anyway, like you said - very good job with adaptation (actually one of the few book adaptations into the movie that I really like and think about it as a good one) but book is book, that is always more (at least for me) :)

I honestly wish I've seen this movie. I have to find it, one day.

There is also the novel that the movie is based on by Peter Beagle.

And that novel has a second part where the characters meet again many years later!
