Unique and amazing experience
28 September 2011 | by See all my reviews

Watching The Flying Machine was a truly unique experience and it will probably be the same for viewers in any age group. The first part of the film, which is a stop-motion animation with no dialogues, just the music of Chopin, is a small masterpiece. I can just imagine the incredible amount of work it must have taken to create a world so complex and full of beauty using puppets and I'm very impressed. The second, live action part, is less dreamy and more energetic, as we view the adventures of over-worked mom Georgie and her two kids: Fred and Jane, who travel on the flying machine through Europe, following the footsteps of Fredric Chopin. Chopin, who is the key to the film and whose music (performed by Lang Lang) was surprisingly touching and beautiful for me (I never thought I would be into classical music) is not only a musical genius, but an interesting character as well, as we get to know more about him during the film. I think one of the best things about the film is the fact that it can reach so many different viewers: animation fans, musical fans, families, those who want to learn about Chopin and classical music as well as those who dream about adventures. Go and see yourself!
