Absolutely beautiful
11 June 2010 | by (Peru) – See all my reviews

"Opéra imaginaire", very much like "Fantasia" and "Allegro Non Troppo", gives life to many of the most famous pieces of classic music through different styles of animation. The animation it's so beautiful as the music itself, but the best thing is that, unlike "Fantasia", the stories of the shorts are quite faithful to their original counterparts.

The styles of the shorts are quite different from each other, but all of them work very well, reaching a unique and poetic quality that not many movies have. There are things that only could be made in animation, and this movie is the greatest example of this: I never saw such beauty, such dream-like imagery in a live-action film. I loved all the shorts that make part of this animated anthology.

"Opéra imaginaire" is one of the most beautiful and mesmerizing films ever made.
