This was Michael Kamen's last score; he died before he could complete it, and his orchestrators filled out the unfinished sketches. See more »

Crazy Credits

This motion picture is entirely fiticious. Any similarities to actual humans or Gayans is purely coincidental. Which is a pity, in case of Alanta. See more »

definitely above average
27 August 2004 | by (Dortmund) – See all my reviews

Back to Gaya certainly cannot match with Shrek 2 or Monster Inc. but keep in mind that in comparison this film is a rather 'cheap' movie. With the funding they had, the makers certainly did a great job!

The main positive aspect of the movie is that the makers did not apply the usual scheme of black and white. All the characters have certain strengths and weaknesses which add some shades of grey. The hero is bold but incredibly stupid. His companion is more of a shy guy yet he is quite resourceful.

Especially the introduction of the black haired Gayans teaches the kids that prejudices and discrimination because of certain bodily features are wrong and unfair.

BtG offers colourful family entertainment. It's funny, exciting and it even conveys certain moral values to the viewer.
