If you think this movie is brutal, you should read the original (unabridged) novel--it has a fascinating little philosophical twist at the end where Bambi learns that Man too is mortal. It is the last thing the Old Stag reveals to him before passing the mantle, as it were. Amazing novel. Not for the overly sentimental.
