Adapted from:
‘Le Avventure Di Pinocchio’ by Carlo Collodi
Directed By: Enzo D’Alo
Genre: Animation

There are certain movies that everyone considers classics. This year saw the release of a new adaptation of one of my favourite childhood films, the Disney classic Pinocchio. This new adaptation will entertain one and all, from the story, the music and the voice over perfectly synched.  The film combines all of the elements of fine moviemaking to create something rare, unique, engrossing and special, that can be replayed over and over again. But for the record we go back in time.

In the Italian city of Florence, a carpenter finds a talking piece of wood and gives it to his poor and lonely neighbor, toymaker Geppetto.  He carves the block into a marionette. and names him Pinocchio. Geppetto yearns to have company and wishes that the wodden puppet could be a real boy. During his sleep, the Blue Fairy gives some degree of life to Pinocchio so that that the wish may come true. Now alive, Pinocchio is capable of movement and speech, but he’s still a little wooden head. The Blue Fairy tells him that in order to become a real boy and fulfill Geppetto’s wish, he must prove himself brave, honest, and loyal, with his conscience helping to tell him the difference between right and wrong.

But  Pinocchio does just the opposite of what the fairy says. Pinocchio runs away as soon as he learns to walk, thereby failing in several hilarious and heartwarming misadventures. Geppetto hopes one day he will turn into a real boy and make his dream come true. Pinocchio has some valuable life lessons to learn as he faces the Puppeteer Mangiafuoco and Cat and Fox. Can he learn in time and really become human?

Sound and music always play a very important part in Disney animated classics, and Pinocchio is no exception. It includes great sound effects, a very strong score, and some of the best songs ever written, the most widely known being When You Wish Upon A Star among others.

Travel for work is inevitable and will be well worth your efforts. Writing and correspondence will also take up a lot of your time. There could be some unexpected visitors from out of town. This could interfere with your plans for a leisurely evening doing what you like best.
