A delightful way to introduce children to classical music!
16 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

All of my children have enjoyed watching this little fantasy story packed with classical music... the story is simple and sweet, about commitment, loyalty, bravery and love... the boy's adventure teaches him how important his music is to him, and that it takes dedication and "heart" to play well. It also teaches that there is pain in life, and that it's better to grow and learn from it than hide from life.

There are times I wince at the animation, it's not the *best* (hence the 8 instead of 10 rating), but is still very entertaining to watch.. similar to fantasia.

I highly recommend it to anyone with kids... or anyone who's a kid at heart ;)
