      Hi travelrat,
      These type of films tend to make you think like that don’t they. I remember when Babe (the pig movie) first came out, a lot of kids wouldn’t eat pork for a long time. 🙂

    Very good. I noticed this was a graduate student project, how great it must of been for them to have the film nominated, it’s the type of film I think most people would enjoy, adults and children alike.

    Oh, I know! I was once carving up a cut of cold venison, and asked ‘Does anyone want a Bambi sandwich?’ I was in the doghouse with my kids for nearly a week!
