She wants to be the envy of her upper-class friends by owning the luxurious foxtail. But Solan and his sidekick Ludvig doesn't want to see Gurin come to harm. And after refusing the assignment they set out to find the gnome before the widow does. Written by Signy

Weak
31 May 2015 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

As an animator, and an admirer of both Kjell Aukrust and Ivo Caprino, it was painfully embarrassing to watch this half assed cheap looking rape of great work.

The animation is below mediocre and makes you angry, the story and structure makes you sleepy, and the voices are damn annoying and keeps you awake, so the film as a whole is like being in limbo.

Some of the design is pretty nice though, probably because it's mimicking the beautiful art of Aukrust.

To be fair, it's important to mention that to produce animation in Norway is pretty hard because the industry is small. Budgets are very big to meet the high wages, and considering that this movie was made in 1998, the makers deserve some cred and respect for actually producing a full feature cartoon at all.

Sadly, the film still sucks.
