a good one
10 June 2006 | by econkinSee all my reviews

A great movie. Found this movie on late at night and decided to watch it. I was nicely surprised for once. It's good to see some depth in ideas and symbols being used in a children's movie. They always seem to be a lot more interesting in this context, more light-hearted and full. It seems that the fairy-tale still is fascinating to any age of mind. It would be nice to see an adult film that could lend itself to a source similar to this but it tends to be the case that attempts are a bit lacking in meaning towards any genuine feeling. The animation is not extremely interesting but is not at all distracting; back round is cool but the characters are simple. Everything, including characters, is well thought through and the whole feeling thats set in motion is happy; not Disney happy (good). Some parts are brilliant. I'll definitely be finding a copy of the film for my niece. I wouldn't mind watching it again either. A pleasant surprise for a late night movie watching and doubly great for being a cartoon, always good to see animation.
