Great film for children and their parents
10 October 2000 | by astrid_tangSee all my reviews

Benny lives with his mother in a concrete jungle. His mother's busy talking to her friends and Benny's left alone – bored. He goes for a walk and finds a tadpole in a nearby lake. Benny releases the tadpole in the bathroom-tub and now the magic begins. The tadpole is a magical prince and the tub turns in to a giant ocean inhabited by sweet, absurd, strange and helpful creatures. It's a film for children from 6 years of age and perhaps even more a film for their parents.

It's a film about children turning to the imagination when the real world is too grey and boring. The vivid imagination, narrative joy, the humour and sarcastic comment on how we live our lives makes this film a masterpiece.
