Synopsis

Mowgli, a young boy raised by a pack of wolves, is being hunted by a terrible tiger, Shere Khan. To protect him, Bagheera the panther decides to take him to live with people. After escaping Kaa the snake, Mowgli meets Baloo, a carefree and pleasure-loving bear who invites the boy to stay with him in the jungle. The thrilled Mowgli accepts the invitation... But he is kidnapped by the Bandar-logs, a gang of anarchic monkeys. And that is only the beginning of Mowgli's adventures ...

Benshi's review

The Jungle Book is a classic of film animation and stands out for the remarkable meticulousness of the sets and the quality of the artwork in general (it is the first Walt Disney film set in a tropical jungle). It is also distinguished by a certain narrative lightness. Although it is based on the book, the film does take some liberties ... Wolves mingle with bears, monkeys and panthers in this imaginary forest and, unlike in the book, the film does not dwell on the human world. Like the jaunty Baloo, who in a sense is the character who makes the biggest impression, the film prefers to wander rather than to delve deep into the story. And the reason everyone remembers some of the songs and choreographed scenes is because, while these are Disney hallmarks, in this film they are done particularly carefully and well. For instance, Louis Prima, who voices the king of the monkeys, performs an unforgettable number... Ultimately the film radiates genuine goodwill and, since the baddies - even the terrifying Shere Khan - are not really bad, it makes for ideal family entertainment. It is also a potential point of entry into the world of books...
