The most touching animated movie I have ever seen
21 January 2012 | by See all my reviews

Anyone who ever had, or ever was a loving mother owes it to him or herself to watch this masterpiece of Korean animation.

This is definitely one of the most touching, poignant movie I've ever had the pleasure to see. It will hit straight into your heart and awoken feelings you forgot you could experience.

Everything from the vibrant art style, flawless animation, well structured narrative, good balance of humor and drama and brilliantly orchestrated score brings this movie to a state of perfection few other animated features have achieved before.

Little warning to parents: Leafie deals with some pretty heavy stuff. I mean, you should definitely go watch it with your older kids, but the younger ones should probably sit this one out. It was, after all, based on a book for preteens and contains scenes of violence (don't worry, nothing too graphic, and this is definitely NOT one of those hyper-violent mindless summer blockbuster) and some heavy emotional investment that might not be suitable to younger audiences.

In brief: I recommend Leafie heartily to everyone, it's a definitive must-watch, but be ready to cry a river.
