wonderful and imaginative
26 March 2008 | by See all my reviews

WOW! Number one on my list of animated films... and ranking high on my all time favourites list as well. I grew up with this and I'm not sure how many times I have seen it, yet I seem to find something new to delight me almost every time I watch this masterpiece. I wholeheartedly recommend this film!

The style of animation is unique and really refreshing compared to what else is out there. It's a film for children and adults alike, it does not patronise the viewer and it's not pretentious. Nor does it put style before substance, which you tend to find is the case with a lot of the animation that falls outside the mainstream. 10 cupcakes out of ten! See it!
