lovely work
18 April 2013 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

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. I do not know it is impressive or only exercise to attract public. for me, it is way for extraordinary memories. frame, soul and skin of an age. nothing else. and , in the time of blockbusters, a drop of precious flavor. or only window to basic values of each society.
