An unexpected and delightful return to a childhood favorite
6 April 2009 | by conwaykSee all my reviews

I remember seeing this movie in a video store when I was about 6 or 7 years old, and when I took it home and watched it, I was immediately captivated. It was completely unlike any of the animation that was being put out at the time, or little did I know at the time, would ever be put out again. When I saw it was finally out on DVD format on Amazon, and for a measly $0.97, I had to have it. I assumed it would be like Pink Floyd: The Wall; amazing when I was a kid, but completely embarrassing frou-frou as an adult. I was completely wrong! It is even better than I remember, and the music is absolutely fantastic, the work of a genius (trust me, I'm a musician). The songs will be stuck in your head for days. What also surprised me is how FUNNY is movie actually is (especially the cannonball scene, which had me cracking up), with incredibly sophisticated dialogue and clever rhyming schemes and excellent English dubbing (you'd never know this film was originally in French). The only downside is the lack of extras, because this film actually has a fascinating backstory, which included a strike (that may explain some inconsistencies in the animation). But all in all, it's a feel-good adventure film, with amazing music, guaranteed to satiate the kid in everyone.
