This has got to be one of the BEST BEST BEST animated features ever!
5 August 2002 | by (New Iberia, LA) – See all my reviews

Where in the hell did the public get off not going see this wonderful animated gem? This movie is AMAZING! The surreal animation and the deep meanings...these could really change a kid's life and give them a better understanding of life. The performances, the art...the music... There is so much to say that is good about this film. I truly feel this is one of the most perfect films I have ever had the pleasure of seeing.

The novel this wonderful film is based on is also great. Well, Greatness spawns greatness. This film is wonderful...wonderful. The plot, the writing...See for yourself and "Be Happy".
