THE ADVENTURES OF MILO AND OTIS (Cannes International Film Festival, Cannes France 1986)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Stars ìììì

The Adventures of Milo and Otis
—a 1986 British-narrated Japanese film—tells a cute and well-narrated story about a kitten named Milo and his puppy friend named Otis. The movie uses staging techniques so professionally and with such artistry that the live animal performance scenes are believable and entertaining throughout its 77 minutes. The moral of the tale becomes ‘there is always a way home if you really want to go home.’ The film contains good wildlife scenery and performs as a good, clean pick for young children.
