Another quaity Miyazaki short film
19 March 2016 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

"Pan-dane to Tamago-hime" or "Mr. Dough and the Egg Princess" is a 12-minute animated short film by Studio Ghibli and as it is from 2010, it is one of Miyazaki's pretty recent works. This little movie is basically Studio Ghibli in a nutshell: The animation is really strong, the story is pretty absurd, but it works because of all the fantastic creatures included in here. Lets have a look, shall we? It takes place in a world of rabbits where an evil big-breasted witch (that surely reminds you of somebody) holds captive a little egg creature, apparently a princess. But a resilient dough managed to help the princess and flee with her when the which is sleeping. Oh well, now that I think of it, it may not be any more absurd than some of the tales from the Brothers Grimm. Anyway, this was a pretty good watch. Luckily, there is no dialogue in here, so you don't need to understand Japanese to see it. All you hear is a solid soundtrack while watching the action. I recommend this one. Thumbs up and it seems really true that Miyazaki always delivers.
