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 »

A beautiful, touching movie
4 October 2009 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing this movie on TV when I was about 6-7 years old and how It moved me back then. The love story is so cute! The movie's similar to Watership Down in it's seriousness and environmentalist message....feels like they don't make movies like this anymore. An intelligent movie. However, there is just a little bit of humor too,albeit ironic and dark. The walrus song in the middle is absolutely hilarious! The animation may not be on par with Disney, sure, but hey, it's from Scandinavia. Some parts containing music and performing crabs in the water felt similar to "under the sea" from The Little Mermaid(and this was before that movie).

Parents, don't underestimate a kids intelligence. I strongly recommend this movie.
