Separated by War. Tested by Battle. Bound by Friendship.
Follows a young man named Albert and his horse, Joey, and how their bond is broken when Joey is sold to the cavalry and sent to the trenches of World War One. Despite being too young to enlist, Albert heads to France to save his friend.
A too long story of a horse in times of WW I and its relationship with a young brit and some other characters in the way.
Too childish but another family movie from Spielberg in the tradition of E.T. and the like.
I absolutely understand why _War Horse_ got the highbrow attention that it did, but I did not find it satisfying on a personal level.
Final rating:★★ - Definitely not for me, but I sort of get the appeal.
