a dog. his owner. the disappearance of a boy. and a great adventure. the boss, the family, the touching story who seems be a modern fairy tale, nice animation, a spoon of humor and beautiful moral lesson. and, sure, an earthquake in Transylvania. it is easy to define the script as childish. or see it as remarkable example of dog training, axis of a film in which the roles are reduced as sketch. but "Mancs" is far to be an exception. it is just one of comfortable films from the East remembering old truths without other desire to give a simple, nice story about values and about people.and this represents a virtue. because , it could be a trip in the past. because it gives an universal message. because it is the perfect story for emotion, fun and the questions of a Romanian viewer why the earthquake was imposed in Brașov and not in a town from Slovakia, Austria , Serbia or Croatia.but it is a nice , modest film. enough for a reasonable pledge for a noble cause.
