This film wasn’t made really for kids. It was made for us — the adults – who fret about our own Very Important Things.
A lot of nostalgia and a bit of humour.
The NY Times
Like Pooh himself, this family dramedy is cozy, cuddly, and sweet.
Common Sense Media
Christopher Robin, now an adult focused on his life, work and family, suddenly meets his old friend Winnie the Pooh, so must embrace again his forgotten childhood to help him find the path to the Hundred Acre Wood and find out the whereabouts of his lost friends, who have mysteriously disappeared, while he is torn between the love for his family and the annoying demands of his employer who is forcing him to take harsh decisions.
The film captures childlike wonder both visually and through the dialogue of the various characters. Many minutes of the movie are just Christopher Robin and Pooh talking very basic conversations that act as philosophical conversations for adults. The film is slow paced so perhaps not the best family or child’s film. But good for pre-teens and older. It is visually very well made – a shame that it takes itself too seriously.
