Bambi: Platinum Edition

David Hand



Published December 08, 2005.Bambi: Platinum EditionDirected by: David Hand(Buena Vista)It hadn't previously occurred to me how off-the-beaten Disney path Bambi is. (How could it? It was the first movie I ever saw.) The combination of lush forest imagery and music finds its closest ilk in Disney's Fantasia, 2001 and music videos. It's the cute animals and narrative pretense that look out of place. But on this restored DVD package, the whole thing's beautiful.Mark PalermoCategories: Best of the year (2005)
