"Draw me a sheep"
30 May 2014 | by (São Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Here's an animated version of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's famous grown-up/children/everyone fable, directed by Oscar winning director Will Vinton. I can't describe the book's effect on me, I read a long ago and just remember the sensation of seeing it all yet feeling "Is all that there is in life?", questions after questions but it was a lovely novel. Now, the film was very depressive, and not in the engaging, provocative way, something that keeps you going in watching it and more like in just feeling incredibly low and awkward afterwards. But that's the story, anyway...

But Mr. Vinton is truly imaginative with his drawings and effects recreating Exupery's world inhabited by a prince living on a planet and his rose and its volcanoes, along with the story's narrator, a pilot who crashed his plane on the boy's planet. Together, they try to uncover the mysteries and the meaning of life. Great sequences, accompanied by the voices of Cliff Robertson (as the narrator) and Michele Mariana (as the Prince; years later, she'd play one of many memorable voices of "Talk Radio", being Rhoda the most recognizable and fun role).

Well, animations can't go wrong and this is a good one, completely harmless. 6/10
