Trivia

This film uses an unusual technique for cel animation: after the animation is completed on paper, the drawings are photocopied onto card, colored and painted with oil pastels, Indian ink and acrylic, cut out and applied to the cel using double-sided sellotape. This technique was used again for Jannik Hastrup's next two films: Dreaming of Paradise (1987), War of the Birds (1990) and The Secret Weapon (1995). See more »

Beautiful and touching film.
16 August 2004 | by (The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I remember watching this film various times when I was aged around four years old. The film impressed me very much, so much that I can still remember some parts of the film at this age, even though I haven't seen it for at least fourteen years. The film is mostly sad (though it has a happy ending), and looking back on it, I think it's not all that suitable for four or five years old, because the theme that is death occurs a couple of times in the film, and that may be scary at times. I vividly remember the death of Samson's mother and the few corpses of whales that he encountered after the oil disaster (which he prodded to see if they were still alive). I think that says enough about the impact that the film would have on four to five year olds. But for the rest it's an enjoyable and good film, quite intelligent as well (from what I can remember), but I wouldn't show it to children under the age of seven or eight.
