Charming and original but with some inconsistencies
3 September 2018 | by carlos-glz026See all my reviews

Ana y Bruno tells the story of little Ana, who is trying to save her mother from a mental hospital before it's too late. The premise is quite simple but there's more to the story and it has some darker elements which i found unexpected. What the story lacked, was more background to the main characters, so we can connect better with them and the story. This and some plot holes and conveniences were the weakest parts of the movie for me.

This film took around 10 years to finish, is the animation up there with some of today's movies? In few words, (sadly) no. But that does not mean it's bad. The characters are well designed and their movements are very fluid. But the animation can be quite inconsistent, because in some parts it does looks very pretty and in others is lacking in detail.

It's not like the movie feels rushed (i mean, come on, it took over a decade to make), but it feels like the didn't know how to end this story, which is a shame because i think the story is quite original, at least for me. It reminds me of older Tim Burton movies.

It's definitely worth checking out.
