[first lines]
Narrator: Many years ago, before there were any automobiles and before we had electricity or even gas lighting and when people used horses if they wanted to go for a ride and oil lamps and candles if they needed a light, there lived in a small country town, yes, a butcher, a baker, and a candlestick- maker.

lovely animation
5 February 2013 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

a religious story. nice, touching and moralistic. almost naive but in a profound manner. a lesson about responsibility and duty, about to be part of central event and, sure, about friendship. a lovely film. like drawing of cloudy mountains, with feeling of first snow , taste of milk cup and full of many delicate memories. it can be a propaganda instrument. in a little measure because it remains fresh and convincing. and this is its fundamental virtue. so, space of joy. nothing else. not Christianity "ad usum delphini" but precise way to remember the essence of a root of joy. the emotion. the feeling. and the role as basis for our life.
