"This movie of Heidi is a real treat for any one wanting to see a film full of family love and love for others, courage and good ole fashioned morality. From the very beginning to the end you'll be sitting on the edge of your seat waiting to see what happens next. We like the movie so much we are going to buy it for our own home library. Heidi shows such love for every one it stirs ones heart. The right wins over the bad in this film."

"While not officially adapted from any of the original "Heidi" stories by Johanna Spyri, COURAGE MOUNTAIN takes the original characters into the dark days of WWI, with an adventure filled with thrills and intrigues.
An adolescent Heidi (played by Juliette Caton) leaves her home in the Alps to attend a private girls' boarding-school in Italy. She soon finds herself at odds with the aristocratic girls, but endears herself to kindly headmistress Miss Hillary (Leslie Caron). When the school is claimed as a barracks for the Italian Army, most of the girls are sent home; but unable to contact Heidi's grandfather, Miss Hillary reluctantly sends Heidi and a small group of the girls into the care of a local orphanage, run by the sadistic Signor Bonelli (Yorgo Voyagis) and his wife (Laura Betti).
Heidi and the girls stage a daring escape, and decide the only way home is across the mountains...with Bonelli in close pursuit. COURAGE MOUNTAIN is filled with enough drama, thrills and adventure to dazzle any audience. Leslie Caron delivers a strong performance as the staunch headmistress; and Juliette Caton is a believably-rustic Heidi.
The cast also includes Charlie Sheen as Peter and Jan Rubes as Grandfather; with Nicola Stapleton, Joanna Clarke, Kathryn Ludlow and Jade Magri. (Single-sided, single-layer disc)."

"This film-a continuation of Johanna Spyri's Heidi- is a wonderful film which tells of Heidi going to an Italian boarding school on the eve of WW1.The school is disbanded when the Italian army claims the school as Military Headquarters.Heidi is sent to an orphanage because she cannot get word to her Grandfather,and she escapes over the border and across the Alps with the sadistic orphanage master on her trail. A breathtaking adventure with Leslie Caron as the School Headmistress and Juliette Caton as the teenaged Heidi. Also with Nicola Stapleton and Laura Betti."
