Frank (12) an his sister Caroline (16) arrive in mythical Attic Town in Shadowland, where the Great Syndicate is ruling and robbing citizens. An army of Shadows kidnaps anyone out after dark and the Patrolling Thieves make the daylight miserable for everyone. Attic Town is a place where the streets have no names and there is no turning back. Not realizing that they shifted in space and time, Frank and Caroline part, looking for directions. Wandering the streets, the boy meets Donlore, a young Patrolling Thief, and trusts this somewhat shadowy figure despite his first instincts. Caroline finds herself on a farm outside of town. She soon sets on a journey to find her brother and help him realize his mistake. She has to find him before dark. When the night falls, he will remain one of the dark rulers forever and there will be no way back. In the meantime, the underground opposition of Attic Town begins to revolt. Written by
The Shadows in the film were played by dozens of highly skilled and accomplished Martial Artists, including Don Ritter - the coach of seven members of Canadian Karate Team. After the visual effects were done -- you could never tell there were people originally playing the Shadow characters. See more »
"Shadowland: The Legend" is amazingly beautiful, and keeps you on your toes from the beginning to the end. Lots of fun, highly interesting, intelligent film, telling a wise fantasy story. From the very first scene, it keeps you totally absorbed, making you laugh, cry, and taking you on an enchanting journey in the depths of Shadowland. It made me think of the Shadows in much broader perspective... The film's director and screenwriter, Johanna Kern, shows not only her great talent, but also deep understanding of human nature and the personal Shadows. Classy, yet highly entertaining film, filled with beautiful scenes and shots, great photography, and amazing fantasy atmosphere. I love the music score, composed by the music legend, European famous musician Romuald Lipko from the band "Budka Suflera". The actors are very talented, all characters are truly captivating, and the youngest stars deserve lots of praise.
I highly recommend "Shadowland: The Legend" to all, regardless of age, especially to young people, and to all fantasy lovers. I can't wait for the sequels ! More of this please !!!
