truly worth watching!!!!
12 May 2001 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

This is truly a classic piece of anime... it's so wonderful, charming and fun and the best part is that the music of tchaikovski remains with you after you watch the film and you really end up appreciating it... wonderful animation and style... though do not expect it to be modern and as refined as any of today's computer generated animation.... All in all it gets a 10 from me... i even bought one at ebay... finally after searching for so long!! have fun watching this film it is truly for all ages.
