This has recently been on SKY movies in the UK under the name 'The Magic Reindeer'.
It follows a young reindeer who is searching for his brother who has been kidnapped. It's a fairly standard tale but is illuminated by some good characters and some gorgeous animation. Unlike many animated tales we are thankfully spared any really annoying characters.
There are some genuinely funny moments to go with the usual animated adventure. Rather surprisingly for an animation it does cover the issue of parent separation which I found a bit strange in a children's film, however I don't necessarily think this is a bad idea.
I really enjoyed this film and more importantly so did my children who are after all the target audience. An animated film that deserves a wider audience.
