lovely
9 December 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

Lovely. A sweet - bitter short film like cinnamon cafee. Simple, delicate, amusing , touching portrait of a young woman looking for her Charming Prince. Dates reminding dance contest, well known characters and the end who gives few tears. But not the story or performances are seductive but the manner to build this beautiful film. A mix of animation and persons , reminding cartoons, having the perfect touch between realism and fantastic. From the family of Amelie Poulain, it is a tasty soup for soul, full of special romanticism.
