Absolutely charming
17 July 2011 | by See all my reviews

I saw this short before seeing the wonderful new Winnie the Pooh movie. And I for one found it absolutely charming. The animation is beautiful with a real charm to it, whether it was in the character designs, the background art or the colouring. Michael Giacchino's music is stunning as well with a warm, heartfelt and nostalgic feel to it, plus it was careful not to overshadow the narration or the storytelling. The story is swiftly told, is very heart-warming, full of pathos and emotion and I think it would appeal to children and adults, the writing is amusing and poignant and Billy Conolly's narration is note-perfect.

Overall, I recommend this short for all, it is absolutely charming. 9/10 Bethany Cox
