"A memorably stylised piece … with moments of haunting grace.” 
RADIO TIMES

“Vivid animation … delighted the audience: this Peter should make lots of little wolf-cubs very content.”
THE TIMES

“Cosa c'e'di più legato ai bambini di una vecchia favola? Cosa di più adatto ad attrarli nel gioco eterno dell'immaginario fatto di paure sospese, di gioie improvvise, di battiti veloci del cuore, di mani che cercano il genitore amico? C'e' aggiungere a quella fiaba le immagini e la musica capolavoro di un autore che l'ha sognata e poi farla accompagnare da una grande orchestra ... accompagnano la magia fino alla fine. Fino all'aplauso liberatorio, fino al trionfo … che Castellinaria ricordera' per molto tempo.”  

LA REGIONE TICINO
“What is more captivating to children than a classic tale?   What more enchanting to them than the eternal play of the imagination, compounded of suppressed fears and sudden joy – of fast beatings of the heart, of seeking out the reassuring hand of a parent?  Then, add to this fairytale the visual and musical masterpiece of the creators who have dreamt up this film and had it accompanied by a full-scale orchestra through to its magical ending; through till the final liberating ovation, the triumph of a (performance) which will be remembered for a very long time to come.”
