Very very nice family movie
27 September 2011 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

Hi, in my opinion that kind of movie does not exist yet in film world.

It's really interesting for some reasons:

  • Stereo 3D looks amazing (I do not know, how it works, but it is like


I'm the part of the film world)

  • Stop Motion - the best, that I have ever saw




  • Heather - and her role - you can see the woman, that is working too


much , see her problems - you can compare it to many many families

  • Chopin's music - there is no other artist like Chopin.




My kid also very liked it - specially balloons and the flying machine.

What can I say, go and try. :)
