Amazingly sweet
16 December 2008 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

While I would agree with one of the reviewers who said this film isn't innovative or raucous, to me this is not a problem--I still highly recommend this sweet little cartoon from the Canadian Film Board. While the story is simple and the artwork relatively normal, the way the story is told had me captivated.

The story is about a day in the life of Doris Dingle and her three beloved cats. I loved the animation style as it made me smile--being very cheery and charming. In many ways, it looked almost like a greeting card come to life. The narration, music, special effects and animation all worked together perfectly to create a film that makes you smile despite its simplicity.

I must-see film that sadly is relatively low rated--perhaps because it's less artsy than many films sponsored by this famous agency of the Canadian government. But for the average person who just wants to be entertained, it's quite a film.
