Selkirk, an unruly, selfish pirate, is the sailing master of the Esperanza, an English galley sailing the South Seas in search of treasures. When Captain Bullock, decides to abandon him on an uninhabited island, he discovers a new outlook on the world and learns to survive alone, becoming the real Robinson Crusoe.
"Selkirk, el verdadero Robinson Crusoe" is an Uruguayan film (co- produced with Argentina and Chile), directed by Walter Tournier. The story begins with a Pirate in search of "El Manila" an incredible treasure. He has a unique map that describes with detail a zone where a lot of ships were lost. Therefore, he joins with a group of pirates in the search of that treasure. There are some things to take into account before watching the movie: 1 - The movie was made with a low budget for this kind of movie ($ 1.250.000, while Corpse Bride, $ 40.000.000) 2 - Was made by a small crew, with lots of technical problems 3 - The first stop-motion animated film ever made in Uruguay
The film is purely made for little children, so it has lots of child humour. But don't desperate, there are some really good jokes for the adult audiences that you will get right away. And the most important thing is, the message that the movie leaves for the children is very simple but significative.
Taking all this into account, my puntuation is: 7/10
