A beautiful film of epic proportions
18 April 2015 | by duskdaniSee all my reviews

Mune was a visually stunning adventure of epic scale. Set in a whimsical world, the sun and moon are controlled by their respective guardians. As the time comes for new guardians to be selected, the boasting and brawny Sohone is selected as the new guardian of the sun. In an odd twist of fate, the reluctant Mune is selected as new guardian of the moon. This film features a very beautiful world, filled with all kind of creatures and fauna. Both the day-dwelling and night- dwelling creatures are very distinct, building a very rich, interesting world. The story is very easy to follow and features a huge cast of distinct, interesting characters. We see practically every corner of this vast world, from the bright, stony land of the day-dwellers to the luscious forests the night-dwelling creatures live in. It's very clear that a colossal amount of creativity was put into this film, and it offers a fantastic visual experience. What definitely surprised me most about this film is that it features several scenes rendered in 2D animation. It is a style you see very little of in mainstream animated films, and was a nice change indeed. This is a great movie for animation buffs like me, and those who love whimsical adventures as much as their children.
