Excellent movie
5 October 2005 | by oktaytaskapanSee all my reviews

This movie reflects the culture and intelligence of distinguished European animated filmmakers. Per Ahlin's personal drawing style and characters are unique. The film is based on Shakespeare's masterpiece, the storm. First of all, it presents a strong message on the future of humanity, life and environmental pollution. This is one of the best animated movies I have ever seen. In my opinion this movie can be compared only to Miyazaki's "Spirited Away". It is clear that Per Ahlin is one of the most talented animators in the world. All children must see this movie ! And a last word: A nice treatment for humans suffering from Disney movies !
