Product Description

Mist is one of three pups born at Borough Farm. From the moment that she opens her eyes she knows that one day she wants to become a real sheepdog. But things are not as straightforward as she might have hoped. Training with the boss seems rather confusing and when Mist tries to impress him with her newfound skills she only gets into trouble. Then there's a bunch of gruff and grumpy rams to deal with, and an auntie who doesn t seen to always have Mist's best interest at heart. Can Mist really learn her craft and one day prove herself worthy of a place in the team of sheepdogs at Borough Farm?

Review

A fun classic for the whole family! --Michael McLeod

Customer Reviews

I would recommend it if you have kids that love dogs.
TBresnahan
The dogs are real working sheep dogs (you can look up their farm and even visit it if you are in Devon, UK).

She exemplifies the power of focus, courage, and attention, and gently teaches those lessons.

I watched this movie because I love animals and wanted a break from the violence and gore of most recent releases. It is an oasis of good, clean family entertainment in a market where such products are increasingly rare.

The movie revolves around a border collie puppy born on a spectacularly beautiful sheep ranch near the ocean in the British Isles. As the puppy grows up, there is a question as to whether she can prove herself to be a talented sheep-herder and earn the right to stay with her family. An unusual, and rather old-fashioned, feature of this movie is that while the animal "stars" speak to each other in unique voices, there is no computer-assisted mouth movement or other modern CGI features generally associated with movies such as this. The actions (and accents) of the dogs, sheep, and ducks all fit who they are and what they are doing and saying, and the individual personalities of each animal become well developed. Kids will love this. Parents will too.

The plot contains some suspense, danger, humor, and (warning) the inevitable tear-jerking moment when one of the dogs dies of old age (very nicely handled). The scenery is magnificent, as is the photography, and the script, while a wee bit juvenile, is still better than scripts found in many "adult" movies.

If you have young children and want to do them (and yourself) a big favor, rent or buy this DVD. It is not as glossy as a Disney feature, but has an old-style beauty that simply glows. You will come to love Mist.

Mist makes the list of my favorite family movies. Just enough conflict to keep it interesting, but no violence, no crude language, no cartoon characters, none of the double entendres you don't want to have to explain to children.

Mist is a sheepdog puppy who grows up in this film and learns the rules of being a good sheepdog. She exemplifies the power of focus, courage, and attention, and gently teaches those lessons. Added to this is a setting that will calm your spirit, and photography that shimmers.

Mist gently lifts your spirit. I highly recommend it.

Life from puppies'-eye view, learning the lessons of growing into a fine working sheepdog. No controversy to speak of, just a feel-good story in a lovely setting, with a few good belly laughs thrown in for good measure. One of the best family-friendly films I've come across.

Not only is the cover cute, but the content is excellent! The photography makes you feel as though you're there in person watching as another dog would watch and the accent is not a problem for most people and reflects the British Isles setting. There's a scene where puppies are born, so it is great to introduce children to birth. Absolutely adorable....absolutely delightful!

If you love puppies, country life and/or the amazing natural abilities of Border Collies, you'll love this movie. A cute story enjoyed by little ones to my father who is in his 70's and an avid cattle man. I bought several movies for Christmas and everyone loved them - even my daycare provider's son who is 4 and never been around ranch life!

Enjoyment for the whole family - we need more like these!

Mist is such a cute movie for kids. I wouldn't really recommend it for adults. It's a little corny but my 3 year old LOVES it!! We rented it and she just didn't understand why we had to take it back! I'm planning on getting her one for Christmas. She even pretends she is "Mist" the puppy around the house. So don't expect an Oscar award winning movie but it's great for young children!

I checked this out from our local library: Our family loved it! Breathtaking views throughout the film added to the quality of the movie. I gave it 4 stars simply because in my opinion had they used a narrator for the entire film vs. actors voices as the dogs I think it would have made it a 5 star movie.
