In the distant planet Cenourano, lives a robot that one day is reached by the pulsing star, which eventually dropped from space, and sparked the passion in the robot by Princess Mimi. Except that just like him, the villain Lord Big Rabbit, a space traveler in search of fortune, also wants the heart of Mimi. To decide who will get the princess, they make a tournament, and the little robot ends up winning. The problem is that he does not have a real heart, which prevents him from staying with Mimi, but he will do anything to get one. His mission is to go after the lost pulsing star, and put it on his chest to have a real heart. But beyond the short deadline for such a task, he still will have to deal with the sabotages of Lord Big Rabbit.

The Best way to homage Brazilian kids'movie lovers
23 May 2007 | by ocinefiloSee all my reviews

Since I was 5 until nowadays - I'm more than 20 years old -, Monica and her friends were among the best things in universe. Mauricio Sousa, their creator, still publishes their comic magazines and Cascao, a very naughty boy who has afraid of water, deserves to be considered the finest expression of a Brazilian Boy - no, we are not all unclean like him, I mean, we are like him because such things like his kindness and preference for simple pleasures like play "bafo" and soccer in the end of the afternoons. But although Monica's group had appeared in several pictures - most of them presenting short stories -, A PRINCESA E O ROBO ("The Princess and the Robot") remains the best, in cinematic terms. The story begins when a little robot from the Big Carrot's planet arrives on Earth and meets Monica, Cebolinha, Cascao, Magali and Anjinho. The lovely robot is condemned to find a heart in a far planet, in order to marry Princess Mimi. Otherwise she's threaten to accept the evil Lord Big Bunny as her husband. The group decides to help the robot, in a journey through the universe. Produced in 1983, the movie has E.T. and STAR WARS as inspirations, but many Brazilian habits can be recognized by those who, likes me, admires heartwarming Souza's work. Every time I saw this, I'm sure that my childhood were remarked by an outstanding icon.
