do you know what poetry means ?
18 December 2005 | by See all my reviews

This movie is a "cultissime" movie for people of my generation in France, and also for my children. This movie is very poetic, and intelligent, far from aggressive, violent, and conventional "modern" children movies today. Of course, the special effect are not made with tons of dollars, but it's much better !!!! I desperately looking for it somewhere...And the music is fabulous !!!! This movie is typically from the same style than "Peau d'ane" with Catherine Deneuve. You're really inside the charles perrault universe, you believe in it and you don't need computers and 5.1 DTS surrounds sounds effects for that. So please, don't criticize this film without a minimum of culture background.
