I watched this movie on DVD in a special screening in Belgium, and I thought that this was a fantastic movie and I would love to watch it again someday. It is great that an actor like Bernard's had the courage to do something like this, that would make him famous, without the help of money. The story is about a French circus, which raises elephants. The elephants are all good natured and make a very good job. One elephant is who can see people, and to keep his temper at all times, he has to be hit very hard with a whip. Bernard, a circus elephant has to help to outlive the other elephants. And he must, to see his master, the elephant surgeon, a great and great elephant surgeon. So, to stay alive, he has to get the attention of a very friendly girl, who lives in the forest. I also liked the performances, because Bernard had to work with a lot of tricks, and if he does not win in the circus, he has to go to jail, for 10 years. But he is very good and he does not mind being punished for a long time, because he is a good natured and very intelligent elephant. My vote is 10. From Iberville, West Africa.

Billed as a "black comedy", I actually found it a bit of a raunchy farce, featuring one punch-up after another and far-reaching conspiracies as to what might or might not have gone on. I thought, "Oh, a comedy, just some really good jokes, and no surprises". I was wrong. The plot is thin. The characters are flimsy. The story is thin. I watched the film with a group of three American Indians, and none of us could finish it without laughing out loud at the insipid jokes and "trivia" that came out of nowhere. I ended up shaking my head at the "fairies" in the court house, expecting the townspeople to find the case against the Indians laughable. How could the judge allow the prosecution to continue while the prosecution was in court? Did they not think that the audience was smart enough to figure out that the court was being presided over by a town judge? Just how stupid was the prosecution, that they were willing to pay the village chief, or the town chief, an extortionate sum of money to help their case without being allowed to put a trial in the village? The climax was weak and ill-conceived. I found it a good laugh when the village chief and the prosecutor and the prosecutor's family all got shot dead. I was in complete shock. I could not believe that the audience would not be able to figure out that the village chief was the village's chief judge. I think that a movie like this could only be made on a limited budget. When they were in court, I could not hear the lawyer. I think that the lawyer's role was to explain the villagers' beliefs, but he seemed to be explaining them to himself, his off-key voice. He should have been the one to put a trial in the village court, because a jury trial would have been a disaster. I am glad I went to see it. I will never get tired of the movie.

Saw this film at the 1995 Toronto Film Festival. It's got it all: great set, good acting, and wonderful and, again, appropriate soundtrack. A true Christmas classic.

My husband and I had the pleasure of attending a pre-screening of 'The Great Elephant Journey' and we were really impressed. The script is great, the photography is brilliant and the performances are all very good. The elephant footage was incredibly fresh and exciting and is a huge plus. The production values are also very high and will keep you watching until the end. We enjoyed it immensely, and look forward to watching it again in the future.

This is the greatest film I have ever seen. I am telling my friends about it, and many of them will not believe me. There are no spoilers, but the story is great. Everything about the film is great. It is more of a mystery. Every time I watch this, I think about it again. It is so beautiful. I want to watch it again and again. It is so wonderful. It is not just a children's movie. There are scary scenes, but not too scary. There are also some fun parts in it. Like for example, the elephant. The elephant was amazing. I was so surprised when I first saw it. I was saying "wow". This is one of the best films I have ever seen, and I have seen many of them. I just love this movie so much. I hope that more people will enjoy it, and I hope that they do. It is a must see for any children, even if you are a little bit old. You should love it, but even if you are not, you will love it. I hope that every one who watches this will like it. I love it. Thank you, HBO. This is a great movie and I hope that more people will enjoy it.

I love this movie. I was very surprised to see this movie on cable and I had forgotten that it was in the channel. It is a true love story. The characters are great and you get to know them and relate to them. The film is just a thrill ride and I highly recommend it.

I am so proud of how this movie is made and done. Seeing the movie theater I was really nervous about how I was gonna like it, but was able to come out of the theater and I am really proud of the way they did it. All the scenes were beautifully done and I recommend it for everyone to go see. I have watched it 4 times and I will be seeing it again soon. All the characters were so well done. All the scenes were really creative. It was awesome how they did all the backgrounds and details. The music was really amazing and the songs were really inspirational. I am a fan of music and I really love how they used music. They used the same songs that they used in the movie so that made it so great. Also, the music really helped you feel what was going on. I recommend this movie to everyone who likes to watch movies and want to see them on the big screen and have a great time. This is a must see.
