Editorial Reviews

There's magic afoot in a maple forest tonight - as the wise fool, Mimmick the Indian, knows. For only he can see the entrance of Fritz, the hobbit-like creature from the enchanted land of Small. So begins the magical tale of two youngsters old enough to explore but still young enough to dream.

I first saw the Great Land of Small when I was a very small person myself. It is one of those timeless classics that people get all misty eyed to remember. It's about a land of 'small' people, and occasionally they are allowed to visit our world by riding over a rainbow, which temporarily links the two worlds. One unlucky chap gets left behind, you all know how fickle rainbows can be, and becomes fast friends with a few earthen children. Everyone shares a grand adventure as they try and return the little fellow back to his homeland. It's a truly wonderful children's movie that even adults will find charming.

A historic film in my mind and life, THE GREAT LAND OF SMALL sends children
and adults this message: "It doesn't matter how big you are, just how big you dream!"
If I could, I would rate this 4 and a half stars out of 5! There is only one thing negative
about this amazing movie, which will be explained as we go deeper into this review.
New Yorkers, Jenny and David travel with their mother to Québec to visit their grandparents
on their farmland. While exploring the grounds one day, Jenny and David come across a
magical looking rainbow and begin searching for the end. On their search for the end of the
rainbow, they come across a little man named Fritz who soon becomes the childrens' best
friend. Fritz tells Jenny and David that he comes from a world beyond the one they live in
called the Great Land of Small. He tells the tale of how he lost his bag of gold to a man named Flannigan who runs his own bar. Now, Jenny and David must journey with Fritz to
the other side of the rainbow to the Land of Small and tell the King and Queen the terrible
news. Together, the real world and the Land of Small will fight to save the bag of gold that
truly belongs to people who dream!
The bad thing is about this movie, is that you only get to see the wonderful world for a short
while and then we are transported back to the real world. However, even the real world seems like a wonderful place. Canada, which is the country I live in, is one heck of a place
to live in and like I said in the title, we really have a way with making movies!

When I was little and saw this, I remember it just captivating my imagination. So I ordered it, hoping to relive the sensation. To my disappointment, it's not like how I remember it. I realize now my imagination did a lot to fill in! My main gripe is when they visit the fairy world. It looks more like they traveled to a UFO world, it's more sci-fi than fantasy. That may sound picky, but I was disappointed all the same. Then, I wondered why I didn't remember much past that point and didn't remember the ending. Apparently, after that scene I'd fallen asleep when I was little. It does drag during the second half (or when you're 3/4 the way...I'm not sure how far into it that was). There are some good points. The bag of gold is fun to watch, the moral of the story is good (about greed being bad) and it keeps the faerie faith alive. The kids are sweet and fun to watch as well. Like many reviewers have said before, it's a strange, strange movie but has its merits.

I remember this movie from my childhood. I couldn't find it anywhere because it is out print. I looked everywhere for this movie and decided to purchase this on amazon.com. It came on the exact same day that. The price of the movie was reasonable. I look forward to purchasing something else from here. I enjoy the Great land of small, even though some scenes are weird.

I had been searching for this movie for years. I could only remember a few details and was soo excited when I found it on here. Watching it brought soo many memories back. Even though I couldn't remember certain scenes off the top of my head, I recognized everything as I was watching the movie. It made me feel like I was back in the 80's! I loved every minute!

The movie is from 1986 so that being said, it is it fair condition. Looks like it once belonged to a movie rental store, so it has a nice sturdy case, movies a little fuzzy at the beginning, but it clears up after a few minutes. It's in fairly good condition given the age of the movie.
