This version of Aladdin's tale is the most beautiful and well written I have ever seen. It is not just some dumbed down, mindless drivel suitable to park little toddlers in front of, it is an excellent telling of a classic tale. The movie itself flows much like the faerie tale in that it lacks the now common gratuitous violence or Disney-fied laugh-a-minute comedy; instead it just tells a good story. The animation is high quality anime, the character voices were well cast, and the music is absolutely captivating. I am sure this is a movie that will endear itself onto you from childhood to adulthood, as it has me. If you can obtain a copy, I highly recommend it.
