Just for kids!!
7 February 2018 | by elo-equipamentosSee all my reviews

A nice adventure in a chinese countryside,with breathtaking landscape, rivers and lakes absolutelly in clean waters, amazing Panda's cub, but the plot and the dialogues are boring and doesn't make sense, a lot of standard clichés, childish behavior, just for the kids!!! A little of imagination shall be better!!
