5.0 out of 5 stars My heart and Milo and Otis, June 4, 2002
This review is from: The Adventures of Milo and Otis (DVD)
ever since way back when, i was maybe 6 years old, i still remember when i first rented it from the video store. it took my little breathaway. whenever i went back to rent a movie, i begged my mom to let me rent it again, until she finally bought it for me.
this beautiful tale has so many layers, heart, and spirit, i can't begin to explain it. the first thing i should mention is, dont get fooled to thinking animals got hurt during the making of this, because they DIDNT. Masanori Hata takes VERY good care of his animals. he shot milo and otis on his own private island in Japan. the original movie was called the Adventures of Chatran, and it was longer. ( i've never seen it, i've been looking for years ) i hope someday i will see it. koneko monogatari ( milo and otis ) makes me cry at the beauty, sadness, and then joy finally. its a celebration of life. you can't dismiss it as a mere " kid's movie", it is for everyone. i detest the "adult" mindset, because it disables them from experiancing all forms of beauty. this is not a movie to me, it's a part of me, and it shares a special place in my heart.
i love milo and otis. - jeffro

How do you explain the cat looking distressed in several situations? And how do you explain the cat being pecked at by seagulls and obviously desperate to get away from them? And how do you explain the cat being thrown off a cliff into the ocean? There are several scenes in the film that are quite disturbing to watch because you can see that the animals are not comfortable. In many cases they looked scared.

Do you think it's ok to have a crab pinch the inside of a kitten's mouth?

There are a lot of movies that have animals in similar situations, go watch Homeward Bound, dog gets stuck in a hole, stuck in the face by a porcupine and a cat goes over a waterfall.

Take your hippie PETA crap elsewhere. If you can't find proof of cruelty, then f' off.

More proof than any of you PETA freaks have been able to provide.
