A unique movie. Children will love it. Adults are just broken., 29 November 2013
Author: another_heavenly_world from another heavenly world

Don't vote 10 for a movie if you feel it deserves a higher rating. If you vote 10, your vote does not count. Vote 9 instead.

This is a movie about dreams, imagination and magic. Also a film that tells us about Africa as the spiritual cradle of mankind. It's filled with beautiful little tales all united by the fantastic dreams shared by a boy and a girl. A journey of initiation and communion with nature on a deep spiritual level. It's so beautiful!

Maybe people that don't like this movie think it's lacking violence and a war of good against evil. Ain't you tired of that yet? Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, they all need villains to justify being heroes. Here there is no need for any of that. And yet there is so much to enjoy! What a heart-warming quest! Learn to talk to the spirits of trees and animals. Learn the importance of tales and memory. So much in this movie that I haven't seen anywhere else! Congratulations to everyone that made this film possible. A true treasure for the children of the world.
