The whole story of a man's life is something large but this movie managed to be entertaining and comical telling a story by dividing it on many stages so well told it feels like it's a little fairy tail, so many aspects and many temporal lines in 2 hours that feels like just a single hour.

The story itself is touching and beautiful while the time placement (involving the wardrobe used and design of the places as well) totally transports the audience to those years, it's colorful and complements the "adventure vibe"

This is undoubtedly a great movie to watch with the family so every single member can appreciate each other stories and how them all got intertwined.
