Hey, this is funny...
8 September 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Despite the simplicity of the cartoons of Bruno Bozzetto, they are almost always funny and well worth seeing (aside from an occasional dud, like LIFE IN A TIN). Well, if you are looking for a good laugh, this is a good place to start. The film begins with a couple arguing and breaking up as a lowly bug watches. Then, once the lady is "available", the bug spends most of the rest of the film trying to capture her heart. This is pretty cute. Then, unexpectedly, a bit of magic occurs--leading to a wonderful and unexpected ending. In some ways, it's reminiscent of "The Frog Prince"...but on drugs!

By the way, I wonder if this film was influenced by The Cars' video "You Might Think"--there are a lot of similarities. And, for that matter, you wonder if Gnarles Barkley's more recent "Gone Daddy Gone" video was influenced by this or BAEUS--they all have a very familiar plot--but one you'll still enjoy.
