‘Colin the Pantomime Horse’ as reviewed by Emily Thomas

Colin the Pantomime Horse (Susannah Hunt) tells the story of a lonely pantomime horse searching for his place in the world. Colin dreams of performing but is ridiculed by horses and humans alike, until he decides to get a job and pursue his dream. A moving tale of love and acceptance, the slick editing and inventive cutting (in one particular shot a horse riding helmet becomes a glittery top hat as Colin daydreams of stardom) mean that the success of the film comes as no surprise.
