Synopsis

This Italian version of the classic fairytale takes the story back to its original fantasy roots whilst sacrificing none of the adventure. Lonely puppet-maker Geppetto discovers a magical piece of wood in the forest and decides to make a puppet out of it, designing a young boy and calling him Pinocchio. One day, Geppetto is surprised to find that the puppet has come to life and has an eagerness to explore the world around him. Despite Geppetto embracing Pinocchio as his adopted son, the puppet soon runs away from home and joins the circus, desperate to discover what its like to live a human life. However, Pinocchio soon discovers that the world can be both exciting and cruel, meeting a series of incredible characters, some of whom look after him whilst others try to exploit him. Darkly comic and slightly more mature than previous versions of the story, this film nevertheless retains its powerful message of exploring what it means to be alive and the importance of kindness.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
