“The Stonecutter” is an inspirational Fairy Tale, set in the beautiful tropical islands of French Polynesia, about a poor stonecutter wjo is taught by an angelic young girl to appreciate the most valuable possession in life – the love of his family!
This movie is strengthened by the scenery which is quite beautiful. It is unique in its approach as the story is told by a narrator and by the actions we see on screen of the Stonecutter and his friends and family. The stonecutter is a poor man who works hard and enjoys the simple things in life, such as living with his family in the little thatched hut where they eat meals together and share quality time. He feeds the birds seeds. He buys flowers from an old lady’s flower stand for his wife. Some things are a bit of a mystery, such as a young girl who is dressed in white and wears flowers on her head. She seems to represent harmony and change in the stonecutter’s life. The film focuses on harmony and unity a lot.
The man is given magic sounds by the girl dressed in white. Because of some of the religious aspects, which are mystical in content, we recommend the film for ages twelve and above. The family does attend a Christian church and there are some beautiful scenes in the film, accompanied by the narration.
