Christopher Robin - The Wisdom of Pooh

Many of us are familiar with Winnie the Pooh and his friends in the Hundred Acre Wood. I grew up with the animated series which was fun for a kid like me back then. But we grow up and learn that the world is like in the cartoons. Yes, it is a sad reality for us adults and many of us have forgotten what  our childhood was, like Christopher Robin.

The child who played with the gang of Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, Eeyore, Rabbit, Owl, Kanga, and Roo has grown up to be a family man with a lot of responsibilities. He almost forgotten them by being too immersed with work that also affected his family. But suddenly Pooh shows up unexpectedly to ask Christopher to help him find their friends. The journey brings them on an adventure that transcends generations and places.

Though this combination of the real world and the hundred acre wood are on opposite sides, the connection of their friendship brought them connected once again but of course things would be very complicated. Pooh and the gang keeps their iconic charm and unique traits as they travel through uncharted places. What I really love about the film is the wisdom of pooh. Though he is joked as "silly old bear," his words are the most tear-jerking and heart melting phrases. It also reminds us adults what we has lost when we grew up, the child that is inside of us which made us genuinely happy even with the simplest things.
