'War Horse' - DVD - 2011

(Rated 3.5/5)

Just seen the film War Horse. Somehow had less of an impact on me than the stage show! Why? Because, I think, you can convey more by showing less, be more evokative - by being symbolic and representative rather than having a multitude of special effects... and perhaps, arguably, by having a puppet-horse-human combination which somehow emotes so much more than any of those individual beings can. A good film yes. A stunning stage show so much more! But horses truly are so beautiful!! Finder played Joey in his most intense acting scenes, whilst George took on Tophorn in his - georgeously sensitive animals with wonderful personalities.
