25 December 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

A Fleischer animation. Lovely, moral, amusing, wise, giving beautiful story and inspired manner to use cliches , the subtle humor and the fresh perspective about so familiar things. A bad guy, his secret, two kids becoming hostages, a wise, courageous duck and the atmosphere of a traditional Dutch village. All is new and great, from music to the characters and the story. Its predactibility is one of good point because not the plot is significant but the charming use of details and the high care for atmosphere. After 84 years, it is more than cool. I t is just...sweet.
