Beautiful animation from the late Dianne Jackson
5 May 2004 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

This film has been on VHS in our cupboard since 1990, and takes pride of place at Christmas. The direction from the late and great Dianne Jackson ranks among the best of the 80's and 90's. This simple touching story about a young girl (Emily) who goes to play with her Granpa (recently departed Ustinov) is animated using colour pencils, and is musically scripted by Howard Blake.

The combination of the fluid animation, wonderful movement of the "camera" and the beautiful musical score makes for one of the best british releases of the 80's. Well worth a watch, and it is available for purchase online.

Also worth a look, is the musical score by Howard Blake, which can be purchased in a beautiful book from his official site at chester novello, and the single for the ending credits, sung by Sarah Brightman.
