The NeverEnding Story

A triumph of old-fashioned storytelling and modern day special effects. A little boy, who is completely hooked on books, swipes one from an old man and reads it in an abandon room in his school building rather than going to class. However this isn't a normal book. It's about the mythical land of Fantasia being annihilated by "nothingness", a strange incomprehensible force that is destroying the land. The only thing that can save Fantasia is a warrior, a boy named Atreyu. The film does a great job switching back and forth between reality and fiction. Pay attention until the end! It is rather difficult to figure out. This one's excellent for children!
