Good art, weak story
17 March 1999 | by haha-4See all my reviews

Ah, well, it's sorry to say that I didn't enjoy it as much as I expected. The animation and graphic arts are wonderful and the backgrounds are breathtaking, but the story.... I mean why they even mention Solan in the title? He disappears after the half of the film and basically a side kick than the main character.

I don't know Aukust world well, and I was very disappointed that they didn't even try to explain the characters for those new to them. I would say it is rather strange attitude in a production that they didn't think of other than Norwegian audience who knows every single of Aukust work. I mean what is so funny about a widow chasing a boy with a fox tail? I'm sure if I read the book with all written humor, I would find it funny, but the bare fact of storyline and confusing disappearences of some characters doesn't make sense to me at all.

Small country like Norway should think big, specially in animation which can easily attract foreign children's film market. I loved Flåklypa Grand Prix and I don't think the new production will not be as successful in the international market as Grand Prix. Why they satisfied with a small success in Norway while they could do the same in the world? It's a mystery.
