Beautiful
18 August 2001 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

To tell you the truth I was five the last time I saw this. My mother rented it out on vid because apparently it was deemed unsuitable for young kids at the time. But I remember it vividly and would love to see it again. The animation was beautiful. Long live Unico!
