Great musical score
18 October 2000 | by (Ottawa, Canada) – See all my reviews

In this fairytale combination of human acting and cartoons, two sisters of opposite character have to find in themselves the goodness to help each other and the friends they make in this good vs. evil adventure.

It had an excellent musical score that might prove, given larger audiences, that opera singers and great orchestras are not necessary for the creation of charming auditory treats.

If Americans had their Disney, Romanians had I.P. Gopo :)
