Storyline

In the village of Momo the pace of time goes very slowly. Nobody is bothering about stress but everyone has time to chat and rest - until the day the grey men arrive. With a great selling strategy they offer the people an account to collect time. Now everybody is in stress in order to gain time for collecting, except for Momo who obviously is the only one without stress. Watching her former friends having no time at all for friendship and other social activities she decides to fight the grey men. The story is a modern fairy tale about how to use time.

A children's classic
30 January 2003 | by vavon205See all my reviews

One of the best movies for children and (as others said) adults as well! The story is very interesting as it is true that people have less and less time for the truly important stuff in life. Another good point about this movie is the fact that the evil is displayed without a lot of violence, and it is still thrilling to watch.

Radost Bokel plays Momo very well and I love the turtle

As a kid I enjoyed watching this and as an adult I still do.

Good stuff 9/10
