I first saw this movie when I was really little, and it's still is one of my favorite cartoon.
I've met several people who, when watching it, were disturbed by it. Mainly, i think, because it is so different from the other cartoons. It has a lot of symbolism, and the characters are neither good or bad. But i don't think it's unsuitable for children... The story around the shepherdess and the chimney boy is so adorable, and i remember loving many scenes full of beauty when i was little.
It is a metaphor of what power can do to people. It shows how love and freedom can never be kept locked up. Every scene of this movie is a small piece of symbolism, making it a piece of art, not always likable, but admirable in its perfection.
