Thought provoking and inspired; you can say a lot with traditional animation
28 February 2003 | by MoriatusSee all my reviews

This movie is only thirty minutes, but it amazingly has a lot of stuff in it. The plot is that Linnea and her elderly friend Mr. Bloom set off on a trip to Paris to look at Monet's preserved house and garden.

The movie provides you with lots of images of Monet's paintings and teaches you a lot about them, like how impressionism works and why he painted like he did.

The film sparkles with humor and warmth, and really lets you see the friendship between the two characters. I saw this movie in a French class, and it showed me how awesome Monet was. The best movie about Monet I have seen, and it is definitely recommended.

1 Star for amazing character interaction

1 Star for striking animation displaying lots of details
