BOY AND THE MOUNTAIN, THE cover image
Beautiful. Absolutely beautiful. This is a perfect film for KIDS FIRST! What I like most about the 3D animated short film, The Boy and The Mountain, is that it is about a young boy who finally accomplishes his dream. The movie's message is perseverance.

The storyline follows a small Chilean child who constantly dreams about climbing the tallest mountain. He goes to school and does not pay attention, because he is always drawing mountains. He goes to college and still dreams of climbing the mountains. He gets a job and still he dreams of climbing the tall mountains. He gets sick and suffers from a strange cough. He finally starts climbing different all mountains until he goes to the big one - Everest.

The production quality of this animated film is excellent. The graphics and animation are awesome. The sets and background look so real. The background music is appropriate to the storyline. The scene where the music really wowed me is when he is climbing Everest and the music grows to a crescendo as he perseveres through the wind and snow and reaches the summit. The boy is very well illustrated and adorable. You can emphasize with him easily and want him to succeed. I enjoyed the story line, which is based on true events. The boy, Hernan, is a real person. He used this animated film to send a message to children. Hernan is still pursuing his dreams to keep climbing tall mountains. What I like most is that the film sends children an inspirational message. My favorite part is when Hernan finally accomplishes his dream. I cheered along with him upon reaching the summit!

The message is to not stop dreaming about your goals. Is better to say "I am glad I did that" than "I regret not doing that." For every adult whose dream was squelched long ago, this film serves as an inspiration that it is never too late to reach your own dream.

I give The Boy and The Mountain 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 5 to 18, plus adults. I recommend this film because of its beautiful message. Reviewed by Ethan P., KIDS FIRST! Film Critic

Hern�n is her dreamy child who does not do well in school. After his parents demand effort and sacrifice, so he concentrates on his studies, leaving his imagination aside. Over the years he will become a successful man and one day he will realize that his most important dream is yet to be achieved.
