Ranked #52 Greatest Movies Through 1960

Animated film about a young deer, Bambi, growing up in the wild after his mother is shot by hunters. IMDB 7.5 rating from over 42,703 users

It always comes up when people are comparing their most traumatic movie experiences: “the death of Bambi’s mother,” a recollection that can bring a shudder to even the most jaded filmgoer. Amazon 4.6 stars from over 384 users

One of the most timeless and universal coming-of-age films ever, Bambi ranks with the very greatest of Disney’s classic masterpieces, along with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,Pinocchio, and Fantasia. Loosely based on the unsentimental novel by Austrian Jewish writer Felix Salten, Bambi regrettably reflects none of the source material’s religious themes, but it resonates with the same sense of reverence and wonder at the splendor and cruelty of nature and life itself, and likewise reflects darkly on the sometimes destructive relationship between man and nature.
