The Neverending Story
Filmfest 2013

German Age Rating

Film Website

The Boston Globe's Michael Blowen termed the movie "so wonderfully appropriate to children that it seems to have been made by kids. But there is enough artistic merit in the tale to enchant adults equally."
Looking back today, it's clear that THE NEVERENDING STORY succeeds most powerfully indeed as this 'dual track' – styled fantasy that Blowen hints at. On one hand, this is a genre film starring children and intended for children; alive with adventure, whimsy and excitement. On another level all together, however, adults can enjoy the film because it cleverly references (albeit symbolically) the vicissitudes of adult life.
