Storyline

In the middle of a cold white winter, little Alma wandering up and down Barcelona's cobblestone streets, unexpectedly, she stumbles upon an out-of-the-way unobtrusive toy shop. Next to it, a wall with various names scribbled on it, which in Alma's bright eyes seems sleek and towering and utterly inviting. So without much thought, the girl puts effort into writing her name in flawless cursive, when all of a sudden, an almost perfect miniature image of herself appears, staring at her through the storefront window. And then, as if by magic, the shop's door opens, welcoming the awed girl to witness firsthand the wonders inside the small and crammed with toys store. Nevertheless, Alma's elusive twin is nowhere to be found. Written by Nick Riganas

This is a story of a little girl.
5 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

When Alma is walking on the street, she finds a doll which is similar to her in a toy store. The clothes which the doll wears are same as Alma, and the doll's hair style is same as her. She is interested in the doll, and she enters a store. She experiences many strange things.

This is an animation film. I love this story. That is odd and a little scary. However I enjoyed the movie so much. I like the characters, the tone and the color. The girl's name is Alma. She is a curious girl and she is tomboy. I love her. The ending is so unexpected. I was really surprised, however the scene is intriguing. I like the scene the best.

I recommend you to watch this film. This film began to be one of my favorite movies. I love the story and the characters. I hope you will enjoy the movie.
