Good fairy tales, but not the best I encountered, 29 July 2014

I did love the animation that the movie was doing. You don't see this style done a lot in this age. I feel it's good to have these choices as animation is an art form and there should be a variety of it other than just the mainstream 3D stuff every animated movie is doing now.

thought the animation lends to the fairy tales that make up the movie (it was almost like opening up a book than watching a movie) the fairy tales themselves were just OK. It may have been the English translation as the movie is originally in french, but I felt the movie was lacking what you would expect in the art of telling fairy tales. like a voice over narration that explains what the characters are going was absent. That may have given the stories just a little more dramatic poise

I did like the concept that connected the stories together about an old man who was told he's too old to make movies and two kids who were told they are too young, team up to make movies in an old run down cinema. Interesting enough, their story was told with a voice over narration.

Overall, I like the movie a lot it was beautiful to see.
