A rare example of a non-scandalous Arrabal creation is ODYSSEY OF THE PACIFIC, a sweet and atmospheric children's movie, filmed on location in Canada, that stars Mickey Rooney as a train conductor. This is a surreal li...展开ttle film about several children who befriend a potty old retired railroad engineer and end up actually breathing new life into an abandoned, rusting Pacific steam locomotive. The cast is excellent, though Mickey Rooney appears to be ad-libbing his lines. The final scenes are exhilarating and will stay with you, and that's a good thing. Recommended for all.
