The Miniature Masterpiece - Size Isn't Everything
11 April 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

An outstanding piece of cinema and I don't use the word 'outstanding' lightly here. The narration and artwork combined so well to bring the story to life. It was a witty, uplifting tale of joy. This short stop off in the brilliant minds of Gary San Angel and Rocky Kev will bring hope, aspiration and belief to not just ukulele enthusiasts but anyone who who's willing to let their ideas in. I was engrossed more than I have been by any movie for a long time, that's down to my passion for the ukulele and being able to relate to the pure enthusiasm and love for something that this movie displays. This is far more than a flash in a pan and deserves international recognition in all the right quarters. There's much more to it than an outsider lookin in would grant it.
