beautiful
15 September 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

i saw this film at a Friday screening at the toronto festival and it was i think sold out. i loved it and it looked like most everyone else did too. the film is animated but more serious like a normal live action film. the director asked the audience at the q&a if its time animated films can also be serious and everyone clapped. this film plays like a real film and not just another dreamworks cartoon. the alien world is soo beautiful and the story flows so well. the ending is amazing and a little shocking but in a good way. the film has something very beautiful and important to say. the action is fantastic. i cried at the very end but wont spoil it for you. i recommend seeing it when it comes out.
