I don´t have a simple clue why the Argentine Academy choose this movie to represent the country for the Oscar. May be they thought that if the Academy can choose a Disney 's film could do the same thing with "Manuelita". Wrong. I like animation movies and I watch and enjoy it with my daughter but this was too much. If you have insomnia this is a good option. I really can sleep confortable because in ten minutes "Manuelita" closed my eyes until the end. The story (coming from a famous argentine kids song)is slow and boring and use some old characters from argentine TV mixed in a bad taste soup with new ones. If you have a choice between "Manuelita" and another one... Don´t think more about it: the other movie will be better, sure.
