nice story, nice animation. a fairy story of old fashion. and delicate air of childhood in circle of few adventures, subtle lesson, good humor, beautiful drawing and wind of feelings. at first sigh, it is gesture of courage to present a film without ordinaries spices. but, it is case it is just perfect option.because it represents a little travel in past. return to classic manner to say a perfect story. it is basic virtue. in same time, it is an Arabian nights page. and admirable resurrection of old wise teller image.
