Just bought and watched Frog Dreaming aka The Quest aka The Go-Kids aka The Spirit Chaser I think that it was a nice kids adventure flick.
The film was written by Everett De Roche (Patrick, Roadgames, Razorback etc.) and directed by Brian Trenchard-Smith (The Man from Hong Kong, Turkey Shoot, BMX Bandits, Dead-End Drive In etc.) I love these two fellas!
Frog Dreaming stars Henry Thomas, Tony Barry, Rachel Friend, Tamsin West and John Ewart. Thomas was decent but i loved Friend and West. Very good, energetic performances.
Not a classic but if you like BMX Bandits you should like this one too.
I'm not familiar with Frog Dreaming, but i always felt intrigued by this title ever since i first read aTomiK's review some 8 years ago.
With the prospect of a North-American dvd and blu-ray release (through Kino Lorber, under its alternate The Quest title) scheduled for August 11th, i thought the time was ripe to bump this thread in order to give it some more attention.
I can't comment on the actual movie (yet), but the upcoming disc looks to be a first-class release, with a 4K restored transfer and a wealth of special features that include interviews with all the main actors as well as director Brian Trenchard-Smith.
