A Welsh Miyazaki!
29 December 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Smashing animation as well as solid live action performances. The storyline(if you can keep up) is interestingly constructed and mixing live action and animation works surprisingly well. Editing is effective and direction imaginative.

The film is an often shocking alternative to Miyazaki's big animation imports that have wormed their way into the mass market. Unfortunately a large portion of the population will be put off by some of the things portrayed in the welsh fantasy, but this should not stop any story loving individual who enjoys unusual circumstances in which to base a fascinating tale.

Here's to hearing more welsh folk tales!
