Ronya lives happily in her father's castle until she comes across a new playmate, Birk, in the nearby dark forest. The two explore the wilderness, braving dangerous Witchbirds and Rump-Gnomes. But when their families find out Birk and Ronja have been playing together, they forbid them to see each other again. Indeed, their fathers are competing robber chieftains and bitter enemies. Now the two spunky children must try to tear down the barriers that have kept their families apart for so long.

The Little Foxes begins a tad slowly largely due to its stagy nature, but as you warm to the characters and the story of corruption and betrayal unfolds, it draws you into to the characters' spider web of deceit, before Davis, as the film's scheming matriarch, hits you with the full force of her performance. It's a sharp, well-made film, that has aged perfectly well and should be more highly regarded than it currently is.

But if I'd have a complaint, it would be that Bella lacked.. "oomph". Power. A sustainable force that could literally move you where you sat, but the film was just too easygoing, relaxing, and evenly paced (the music didn't help either) to accomplish this. Also, it was far too short; not that it felt rushed or anything, but so much more could have been packed into this package. Still a beautiful film, though.

It's on the cheap side, some of the cuts in scenes early on are draw-droppingly bad but thankfully this amateurishness melts away after the first half. Dan Duryea plays the private dick type character but Don DeFore is actually loads better as the criminal whose bungling caused the whole affair. In fact he's probably the best actor in the whole film. Good stuff.
Brandon W (it) wrote: What sticks out to me in this western film is the acting, because there is a ton of suberb actors with great talent in this film. Russell Crowe is amazing as outlaw Ben Wade. He is nasty and a stone-cold killer and yet so charismatic. He plays alongside the protagonist, Christain Bale. Now although Bale's Dan Evans doesn't really have any interesting character traits that make him different than many other heroes in Western movies, but Christain Bale always brings a great level or dedication and heart to his roles that he makes it work. The rest of the cast including Ben Foster, Peter Fonda, Alan Tudyk, Logan Lerman and Dallas Roberts all do an excellent job too. Now with lots of movies I've seen, either you get great acting, or great action. It's hard to find a film with both. This film has both. Bullets fly, and when they hit, you feel it. I also love how the wild west is shot in this film. In reality, I just love the aesthetic of Western films. If you are new to the Western Genre, this is a great one to start with because this film is fantastic!

Martin T (mx) wrote: A year after Kansas City Confidential, Phil Karlson again directs John Payne as a regular Joe getting framed, with a lot of punching along the way. Otherwise, the two films don't have all that much in common, but they're both equal in quality. This one might be a little tighter in construction, actually. I'm not quite sure how I feel about Evelyn Keyes. Sometimes she pulls off some good work, but there were also moments where she didn't seem that hot. Speaking of "hot", the movie gets pretty damn sexy. Nothing like you'd see today, of course, but quite suggestive for 1953. A really solid film that rolls along beautifully.
