seductive
31 May 2017 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

after decades, its force of seduction remains the same. fascinating, nice, touching , lovely musical and admirable proof of Ion Popescu Gopo genius. nothing surprising. because it is a brilliant reflections of the childhood. and inspired meet between actors and animation. sure, it is result of the collaboration between Soviet and Romanian artistic teams. but, in same measure, it is a wise exploration of magic as tool for discover fundamental social values . and this does it special. and, sure, seductive.
