Rating 5.0 DOUBLE DELIGHT Movie Lover: from GARY, IN US -- April, 24, 2008

WHAT GOES FOR "ANNE OF GREEN GABLES" GOES DOUBLE FOR
"ANNE OF AVONLEA". THE "LIFTED" MATERIAL REFERRED TO IN THE GREEN GABLES REVIEW IS ACTUALLY REMAKE MATERIAL, SINCE THE ENTIRE FILM IS A REMAKE. FULL OF GOOD HUMOR.
THE SCENERY, THE FILM SCORE, THE CHARACTERS, THE SCRIPT,
THE CHARMING CONCLUSION OF ANNE OF AVONLEA ALL ADD UP TO MAKE A GENUINE FILM CLASSIC.
THE CONTINUING STORY NATURALLY ADVANCES THE MOVIE
FROM PART ONE.
ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT GEOGRAPHICAL SPOTS IN THE FILM IS A BRIDGE. THIS SPOT IS ENRICHED BY VARIOUS EVENTS TAKING PLACE ON OR NEAR IT--SUCH AS GIL'S FIRST PROPOSAL TO ANNE. THE MOVIE ENDS THERE ALSO.
FAVORITE SCENES: ANNE GOES TO PICK UP AN EDITOR'S REPLY TO HER MANUSCRIPT SUBMISSION (THE SPIRIT OF THE MUSIC FOR THIS SCENE IS SHEER PLEASANTNESS); ANNE MEETS UP
WITH GIL AGAIN AS SHE STEPS OFF THE BRIDGE AND DROPS AN INVITATION FROM MORGAN HARRIS; ANNE RUSHES TO THE TRAIN STATION TO THANK AND SAY GOODBYE TO GIL;
DIANA BARRY COMES PUSHING THRU THE CROWDED STORE DECLARING "I'M WILD WITH DELIGHT!"; ANNE AND DIANA IN DIANA'S ROOM BEFORE DIANA'S WEDDING; ANNE TRIUMPHS OVER THE PRINGLES AT THE KINGSPORT SCHOOL DRAMA.
BEST DRESSED: MURIEL STACY/ MOST CHARMING: MINNIE MAY:
MOST DIFFICULT: KATHERINE BROOKE: / FUNNIEST: MORGAN'S
MOTHER: /CUTEST LAUGH:ANNE /MOST TRANSFORMED: KATHERINE BROOKE:/ MOST LIKEABLE: GILBERT BLYTHE:/ MOST
LOVABLE--DIANA BARRY.
THIS IS REALLY A 10-STAR MOVIE, BUT IT APPEARS 5 WILL HAVE TO DO.
WHOEVER APPRECIATES CLASSIC FILMS WILL CHERISH THIS ONE.


Rating 5.0 A MOST DELIGHTFUL ENTERTAINMENT EVENT Movie Lover: from GARY, IN US -- April, 19, 2008

SEASONS OF THE HUMAN HEART ARE CAPTURED IN THIS MOVIE.
AN INTELLIGENT, IMAGINATIVE ORPHAN GIRL CHANGES ATTITUDES AND LIVES AROUND HER FOR THE BETTER. BY A COMBINATION OF QUICK THINKING, DETERMINATION AND A VERBAL AGILITY WHICH SOMETIMES BACKFIRES, HEROIN ANNE SHIRLEY SAVES THE DAY FOR OTHERS IN SPITE OF HER TEMPER AND OTHER FOIBLES.
THE RURAL SCENERY IS VERY LOVELY AND THE SCORE BY HAGOOD HARDY IS A MASTERFUL EXAMPLE OF WELL PLACED
DESCRIPTIVE SCENE MUSIC WITH BALANCED AND APPROPRIATE FEELING. CLOSE ATTENTION TO FACIAL EXPRESSIONS IS A KEY TO FULL ENJOYMENT OF THIS MOVIE, ESPECIALLY THOSE OF THE LEADING CHARACTERS (WHICH FEATURE BECOMES EVEN MORE
IMPORTANT IN THE ANNE OF AVONLEA FOLLOWUP FILM).
AN EXAMPLE OF THIS IS WHEN ANNE'S ADOPTIVE MOTHER MARILLA TELLS HER SHE CAN GO TO THE BALL AFTER SHE HAD FORBID HER TO GO. WATCH THEIR EXPRESSIONS-- TRUE SLICE OF LIFE.
VIEWERS CAN EVEN BE ENLIGHTENED ABOUT CERTAIN NEGATIVE CHARACTERS THROUGH THE CHARACTER OF ANNE.
THE RESULT IS THAT THE LESS LOVABLE ONES TAKE ON A CERTAIN CHARM OF THEIR OWN IN TIME. THERE IS MUCH HUMAN WARMTH SHOWN, AS WHEN ANNE GOES TO THANK HER ADOPTIVE FATHER MATTHEW FOR THE DRESS WITH PUFFED SLEEVES HE BOUGHT FOR HER TO GO TO THE BALL IN.
THOUGH SOME SCENES ARE LIFTED FROM EARLIER MOVIES, THE SCRIPT IS VITAL AND NEVER DULL, ALL PARTS WELL-ACTED.
DIANA AND ANNE TOGETHER IN THE FIELDS OF GREEN GABLES IS AN ANTHEM TO FRIENDSHIP. GILBERT BLYTHE, MINNIE MAY, JOSIE PYE, ALICE LAWSON WITH HER CHEERY DIMPLED SMILES, RACHEL LYNDE, MURIEL STACY---THEY AWAIT YOU IN THIS COLORFUL PRESENTATION OF WHIT AND CHARM, TEARS AND JOY, LOVE AND LIFE CALLED "ANNE OF GREEN GABLES".
