A little love brings big results in this family film about the remarkable true story of Andre, a seal who each spring swam hundreds of miles to visit the human family that rescued him when he was an orphaned pup.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
What a frustrating film! Never mind the fact that the real Andre was a seal or the voiceover bookends. It's just plain manipulative. Yes, the sea lion is adorable (raspberries & all!) but how the film makes us like him just to put him in mortal danger was so forced. The snow search & gun violence overdo it, but it goes too far w/ Billy The Seal Hater (who's all pitchfork & anger issues).
