A young boy drifts off into his own depression after dealing with his mothers death. His father tries to raise him right but the boy needs his own answers. He finds these answers after running into a strange book store to escape some bullies. And the book that he "borrows" would lead him into a mystical adventure that would help him come to his own understanding. There are underlying lessons about depression, apathy, and other destructive emotions in this film. What new name did the boy give the empress?

In 1984 (that is 30 years ago), This [The Neverending Story/Die Unendliche Geschichte] was the most expensive movie ever made by the people of Germany…

Too bad Michael Ende (the author who wrote the book upon which the movie is based) hates this movie (directed by Wolfgang Peterson, the same guy who will direct 2004’s Troy, which is Hollywood's (and Wolfgang Peterson's) own gods-free version of the Trojan War described in Homer's The Iliad and The Odyssey) so much that he got his name removed from the movie’s credits!

    One of my all time favorite movies. It made me cry. When a movie that's mostly for children makes an adult cry (in my early 20s right now BTW), it's doing something right.

                  mommy must have been a hippy, because the name he gives to the empress was "moonchild"

                      Forget you boozwah49! Atreyu looks like a real boy in this movie. Not like a phony, macho, closet homo-like maybe u- who underneath probably wanted to do Atreyu as much as I do!!HAAA

                                      What a great movie! Not as good as the book, but a real treat!

                                      Fantasy is forever awesome!

                                                no Atreyu was a boy.......and he grew up to be a really cool boy (like with his own tattooing company) and apparently busted himself up while testing horses (broken collar bone)
                                                I like the first one the best- (number 2)johnathan brandis (???i think???) wasn't my thing, and none of the re-occurring characters looked even remotely like the original players.
