letter from the past
20 November 2016 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

it is the easy manner to define it. because it is far by the ordinary contemporary animation. because it reminds themes and tricks and dreams from the childhood. because it is a nice story and the right manner to trip in the gardens of a lost time, using the tools of fairy tale but giving more than another one. touching and seductive and cool. one of films about more values and a great story about friendship. it could be enough for joy, reflect and redefine the every day problems. because, in same measure, it is a story about freedom. and this small detail does it irresistible. for the sensitivity and the right rhythm to present it. for the lovely characters and for the clash between civilizations. so, a letter from the past. each word is real essential.
