Excellent
14 September 2006 | by friedfyshSee all my reviews

I watched this movie dubbed in Spanish on a DVD that came free with a Spanish magazine, so I obviously wasn't expecting much. What I found though is one of the most heartwarming children's films I've ever seen. There are some great songs (in Spanish anyway) and the DVD I have even has a karaoke feature should you decide you like them so much (yes, I've done it). The story does pretty much what the title says. A seagull dies and leaves a cat to look after her egg. The film follows the adventures of the baby seagull and her cat friends. There are moments of sorrow and others of happiness. I'm sorry for not being more articulate but my point is that I was emotionally touched and I think you will be too. Watch it if ever you get the chance.
