A CREATIVE START.
The film is over ten years. Soon twenty years. It’s Chris Columbus who directs. It’s cheery and upward atmosphere when you enter the magical castle Hogwarts. Everyone is happy and nice but something is shown to not sue. Namely, someone who is behind a stone, which gives eternal life. There will be a stir and you get into a tempo with live chess pieces, chatting hats and a man with two faces.
The film is seemingly a good start. It is a children’s movie without a doubt, it is dubbed into Swedish. It has a lighter tone than the rest of the film series. Half of the film consists only of the introduction of the new life as a magician. There are clearly defects in the action but it can be easily ignored, if you do not think about it of course. As a whole, it is a quite simple introductory film on a large popular film series that has stretched all over the world.
The first time I saw this one was when it came out on VHS, it was different film. The experience was totally in another light. It was certainly more compelling and more enchanted as I experienced this journey with the Harry, Ron and Hermione.I did not understand at the outset what it was all about. It took a couple of years before the books came. When I started reading the books, which the films are based on, I was stuck and did a look at the film, which changed my opinion about it. In the current situation, it is very good, easy to see and amuse both older and young. It attracts both type of audience mostly because of the mature content that is brought to the screen as it provides a crime and mystery story with fantasy element included and are most aimed for younger children.
