A great love story.
The animated story of Bambi, a young deer hailed as the 'Prince of the Forest' at his birth. As Bambi grows, he makes friends with the other animals of the forest, learns the skills needed to survive, and even finds love. One day, however, the hunters come, and Bambi must learn to be as brave as his father if he is to lead the other deer to safety.
Bambi is, and probably always will be, my favourite Disney film. By conventional standards, even for the time, it has a weak plot. Essentially it is just about a young deer trying to survive; there is no real character arc beyond the natural progression of growing up, maturing and experiencing first love, whilst the antagonist stays off screen and is never defeated. But what makes this film work is that it puts all the little moments front-and-centre, with the exception of the mother getting shot and the climactic fire (hopefully I haven't spoiled the film for anybody), the film is all about the moments of first friendships and experiencing a world anew. These scenes are so beautiful not only in…
Dear Disney people,
My daddy says I'm allowed to swear at you, so I will.
You are a bunch of poopie pants because you made me cry a lot! That's not nice.
I did laugh a lot at the silly rabbit though. He's funny.
Hugs and kisses,
(Dirk is my dad. He made me watch this.)
"I was talking to myself about you the other day, we were wondering what became of you."
This was never one of my favourite Disney films. Maybe it's because I find it dull, or maybe I'm just not as keen on the animal based Disney movies, period.
The soundtrack, although suitably melancholy, just doesn't have the spark of the other Disney films of this era. Seeing as a lot of Disney movies lean on the song sequences for support, this gives it quite a weak edge straight away in my opinion.
The characters are suitably charming, each having their own sweet personality, but it's just not enough to make this as interesting as it should be. Saying that, some parts…
The film that traumatized a generation of children and still does.

- No viene
Y así es como lidiamos con la muerte en una película con muchos animalitos felices que se estrenó en mitad de una guerra.
Yeah. I watched Bambi. It came on Disney Channel this morning and I watched the whole thing.
Simply put, I think this film is the best classically animated movie Disney or any other studio has put out. The animals are animated well, the backgrounds are gorgeous, and the story is simple enough for a child to follow, but compelling enough to impress anyone.
It is a lesson in the fact that life is best lived by both your own initiative and with the support of your friends and family. Bambi initially relies on his mother for support, then his father, then his friends, and finally, when he is strong enough, on himself. In the end he realizes that he must now help those who helped him. This is an absolutely essential lesson for children to learn and is beautifully conveyed in the form of this film.
When I eventually have kids, I will keep this film on the shelf.
Disney's purest cutesploitation movie, Bambi mainly shows us what the animals from Snow White are doing when they're not providing filler material in another film: not much.
I guess Disney decided their style was appealing enough to compensate for a terrible story. And I kind of agree. Despite the fact that they shamelessy recycle their cute animal designs (that they would shamelessly recycle even more in the future), Bambi is mostly gorgeous to look at, making great use of the multiplane camera to suck you into its lavish forest.
Nondescript animation and a lack of flow hurts this otherwise decent naturalistic flick from Disney.
The first act is five stars. Sweet and pretty and not concerned with anything other than atmosphere. Second act feels a little shoe horned in. Has some troubling attitudes about parenting, as do most Disney movies.
The child voice actor's are a little grating at first, but this film contains some of the most beautiful animation you'll ever see (see the "April Showers" sequence).
I love Bambi.delightful characters,Great story and looks fantastic.One of Disneys best in my opinion
Tristísima peli de Disney y uno de sus clásicos. Tambor sigue encantándome
A beautifully animated tale of nature, Bambi is one of Disney's saddest films, and also one of their most hopeful. Gorgeous.
Oh, excuse me, someone must have just punched me in the face I can’t think of any other reason why I am crying so hard.
Walt Disney was one sadistic mother.
Might have been unique when it got released as they weren't many nature aware films back then, but this film has not aged well as we are saturated by that genre today. Also the film, rather than being timeless with the type of dialogue and ambiance like Pinocchio, this feels childish, only recommended if you are 5 years old, ill give it props where props are due, the final forest fire scene is beautifully animated
