In terms of quality, The Enchanted Boy really does live up to its name
12 October 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Being on a roll with viewings of Russian/Soviet animation, The Enchanted Boy really stood out in how beautiful and heartfelt it is. The animation is traditional in style and is coloured with such warmth and atmosphere. All the characters and backgrounds are well-drawn as well. Anybody looking for good music will not be disappointed, it is never bombastic nor is it dull, it is simple and understated yet also charming and quietly haunting in equal measure as well as being distinctively Russian-sounding. It is very easy to be touched by and identify with the story, which is told with such heart, the morals and lessons Nils learns are important and are dealt with in The Enchanted Boy a subtle and not preachy way. The characters all engage, Nils is not the most likable of characters to begin with but as he grows in character on his journey he becomes much more so. The voice acting is appropriately noble, especially from Valentina Sperantova as Nils and Erast Garin as Martin(the most memorable of the supporting characters). All in all, enchanting and heartfelt, really lives up to its name. 10/10 Bethany Cox
