Lady and the Tramp surprised me. When I was a child, I despised this movie. I can't exactly say why, but I just never connected to the story or the characters. Probably because I'm a cat person.
Anyway, watching it again I realised that this is one of Disney's better films. The animation looks magnificent for 1955, and many scenes just had me in awe. I think what surprised me the most was that I got a little bit emotional towards the end. It's not one of my favorite Disney films, but I can't deny that's a very good movie.
So this rich and lovely husband and wife buy a puppy and call it Lady. She grows up and eventually stops getting as much attention, mainly because of her owner's new born baby. She meets a dog called Tramp, who helps her one day when she can't get a muzzle off. He shows her life outside the backyard, where dogs can roam free and chase chickens. They have run-ins with rabid dogs and the pound, but one thing is clear, they're in love.
|An amazing moment in the history of cinema.|
I really liked the music throughout, with the exception of "We are Siamese." It's good old fashioned Disney music, with a wonderful choir singing the chorus. The greatest moment was when the two Italian restaurant workers sang Bella Notte to Lady and the Tramp. I'm not gonna lie, I absolutely hated the Siamese song that was sung by those horrendous cats. Mainly because they scared the hell out of me when I was a kid, but the feelings are still there.
Well there's not much more to say really. It's really well made and more mature than most Disney films. I laughed a few times, I smiled a lot, and I nearly shed a tear.
