There is a scene were a magician turns a tree into a woman's form and her giant boobs are smothering him-- my 5 year old son and 9 year old daughter thought it was really weird as did I.
Then a harpy-- a vicious hawk-like tree with two sets of dangling human-looking boobs is seen killing and presumably eating an old witch. This movie is not a simple story and takes aim at some pretty deep issues: death, love, regret, identity, facing fear.
After reading the book as an adult, parts of the movie made much more sense than before.
I found nothing redeeming about this movie at all. It is not Walt Disney. I recommend this film so long as you stay in the room while the child is watching and pay attention to their reactions, be ready to talk about it if the child needs or wants to.
My children also thought so. Read my mind.
