An underrated magical Spanish tale.
4 January 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can't believe I just discovered this movie a few days ago. It was also hard to look for it because there was also another movie named "Nocturna." Not much is also posted about this movie in the internet but I hope this will be more known soon because it's a fantastic tale.

I would disagree with one of the earlier comments which said that it's the Spanish version of Monsters Inc. because this one is quite different and is an unusual tale. There are also some scenes in the movie which reminded me of some movies of Studio Ghibli but I would say these things that reminded me are the style of the art and the feeling you get when watching a great movie.

Thus, this will definitely be in my favorite movies list and I will probably recommend this to other people because this is not what the negative comments speak of.
