A beautiful story for beautiful people of any age.
26 March 2012 | by See all my reviews

To any one reading "I wonder what kids will think of this. Because they might be the main target audience for this." and wondering the same. I can say that in the showing I saw there were a lot of kids and many French kids. No one was talking, everyone in the room was taken in and concentrating - no one left for the toilet - the only time there was any movement or sound was when the kids (and adults) were laughing with joy - especially at the "tom-tom magie". Each story contained morels and some potentiality tough subject matter for children, but in a well balanced way. I saw a subtitled version - that was not 3D. A beautiful story for beautiful people of any age.
