True magic
16 December 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw Lost and Found as an admirer of Jim Broadbent and as a fan of the source material and animation. And I found it truly magical, that was every bit as good as its source material if not better.

The animation was beautiful, it was never overdone but quiet yet atmospheric with crisp backgrounds and bold use of colour. The characters were convincing in design and movement too. The music had a nostalgic feel to it, and was also hypnotic without being obtrusive.

Another strong point was the story. It was a simple, but very touchingly told story, with one of the most heartwarming messages I have encountered in a film or short film in a while. The characters were so likable and engaging. Jim Broadbent's narration was soothing and just perfect.

In conclusion, a must see. 10/10 Bethany Cox
