Commentscontains scenes of horror. This is a fantasy film based on a popular children’s story and contains complex themes of a puppet that comes to life, curiosity, a father and son separating then reuniting, learning about life through adventures, learning that the world is not always kind or honest, listening to ones parents, corporal punishment at schools, falling for tricks and consequences thereof, corrupt cops, caring for those you love, magic, being kind to others, escaping danger and becoming a real boy. Themes are within a fantasy/drama with elements of horror, they have a mild to moderate impact and contain a sense of threat and menace which may be emotionally distressing to young and sensitive viewers below the age of 10 as they still take the world at face value and may not understand the lessons the film is teaching through Pinocchio’s misguided adventures. The Film may be of particular educational and entertainment value for viewers aged 10-12 who are starting to understand morality and consequences for actions. The film can provide important pro-social lessons such as stranger danger, listening to parents, working hard and taking care of loved ones. Parental guidance is advised for children aged 10-12 to provide reassurance, as the film ultimately has a positive outcome.
