Deserves a much higher rating.

What a wonderfully original piece of storytelling. I do have to say if anyone thinks of this as just a children's movie they're missing the point. This is a movie for all ages. Think of it as a piece of music that's presented in sections or "movements" like classical music. Something like this could never be made in America with the corporate mentality of American studios. This proof that good story telling is still possible in this world.
