nice children's movie
9 October 2005 | by all41-3See all my reviews

Kon, a brave inhabitant of the upper reaches of the forest, drops down towards the medieval society on ground level. Kon is considered a primitive because he doesn't wear much clothing and doesn't cover his ears. He falls in love with a simple maid and becomes the court-jester. Then suddenly the lake freezes over and it snows for the first time in living history. The king takes this opportunity to discover the mystical lands across the lake, a disastrous idea as the ice melts during the expedition... I won't give more details as it will take all the excitement out of the flick. I'll say this dough, well made, nice songs and fun to see. Takes the monkey with both primitive and advanced society. The one for being too conservative, the other for being backstabbing, intellectual and focused on clothing. Both are filled with superstition. Nice one!
