Memories from my childhood
16 August 2006 | by stephke_beSee all my reviews

I just received the DVD of Heid for my (ho so old already) 30th birthday and it's a brilliant gift: I watched the series when I was 8 years old, can you imagine that ? 22 years ago ! and I think it's lovely, very moving and the landscape is stunning, I'm planning to show it to my little girl when she's old enough ... Why ? I am a city girl and I must say that Heidi made me dream, made me escape to pastures green, it shows the simple life, with no television, no fuss about food (you were happy to get any), you had to be inventive and make your own goods ... OK, on the other hand, you didn't earn a lot of money (but you needed less also I think), medical care was not that good, if you were a stranger you would be shunned and life was though ... but I think life was also more rewarding: you were proud of what you accomplished, you had fresh air and you didn't bother that much to buy buy buy ...
