“u0026quot;Princess Caraboou0026quot; is a rare breed of film these days — aimed at adults, but highly respectful of the human soul and therefore safe for all ages. All viewers should find the historical angle fascinating, lovers of whimsical, offbeat humor will be delighted, u0026quot;romanticsu0026quot; will be stirred by the powerful ending…and the ravishing color palette of the sets and costumes will enchant those who crave sheer visual beauty.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003enI personally thought the wonderful ending was handled very well — it was particularly powerful for being beautifully understated, and did not u0026quot;take awayu0026quot; from the effectiveness of the story. Because it had been foreshadowed (with great subtlety) throughout the movie, it did not arrive as a shock but rather as a fulfillment.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI must also put in a good word for the glorious music…another home run. See this film. As others have noted, it will stay with you long afterward.”
