Storyline

A plump and exuberant monk goes fishing, and a playful fish eludes him. First the monk uses a rod and reel, then a net; over and over, he ends up fish-less and wet. Sleepless, he tries luring the fish at night with a bank of candles. He tries a bow and arrow. The tireless and insouciant fish leads the monk through a viaduct, over irrigated steppes, across cisterns, down canals. Suddenly, the monk's chase and the fish's teasing flight become a spiritual journey. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Great...if you like boring and pretentious!
1 September 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I just can't believe that so far all the reviewers have given this cartoon a perfect score AND it was nominated for an Oscar! This is a cartoon that a small number of people will no doubt enjoy, but all children and many, many adults will find it a waste of time. I know this sounds harsh, but let's face it---there are many Oscar-nominated films that the average person would never watch or enjoy in a bijillion years and this is one of these films.

I didn't particularly enjoy the cartoon. At first, it seemed kind of cute to watch the very simply drawn monk jumping up and down trying to catch the fish...for about the first minute. About the only thing I enjoyed throughout was the music written by Corelli--a magnificent piece of music that was written in the very early Baroque period. Other than that, I am sorry but I must be a plebeian--it just didn't interest me in the least and seemed dull and pretentious.
