A magical movie, for the whole family!
17 November 2001 | by badalienSee all my reviews

Dancing on the moon follows the great magical surroundings that Rock Demers' has made over the years. Since my youngest days, his movies have amazed me, and the first movie I saw in my whole life was one of his; La Guerre des Tuques, a classic! I saw all of his movies, and I always enjoyed the watch!

Dancing on the moon is poetic and dreamfull, and a will please the whole family, from the kids to the parents, the cousins to the granparents!

Watch it! It's really beautifull and true! :-)
