The animation is quite poor.

Sing to the Dawn (2008) feels like an extremely long music video. Despite having numerous unique characters, from talking animals to the village people, the animation is quite poor. With stiff bodily and out of sync voice-lips movements, the animated feature feels not so animated at times but it does have a great voice actress for the musical part.

This might be mean but I find Sing to the Dawn (2008) one of the weirdest animated movie ever made. Weird not because it is poorly done, it is mostly due to the true origin of the movie being quite uncertain. Audiences from both countries mentioned that it is their very own with rare mentions of the other country despite it is a collaboration. Most confusing, the true director of the film is uncertain as well; unless we all got the wrong guy, the director seems not to acknowledge his own work too.

Nonetheless, Sing to the Dawn (2008) does have some funny moments and noteworthy theme. Even though nothing is fancy here as it is realistically set in a small village, it touches on important issues such as arranged marriage, private ownership and social status.

Overall? Sing to the Dawn (2008) is not a bad attempt since both countries are considered quite new to the animation industry but the origins of this animated feature is weird, making it difficult to analyse. Still, nothing's wrong with girl with dreams right? Some may enjoy this, but I don't...
