Quebec City, 1956. Nelly Maloye, an ebullient novice detective, accidentally crosses paths with Simon Picard, an ambitious research assistant in anthropology at the local university. Backed by a glory-seeking philanthropist, the intuitive but disorganized Nelly and the methodical, obsessive Simon set off on a wild adventure, determined to prove the existence of the Abominable Snowman. To achieve this goal, Simon relies on the coded diary of a missing explorer - a diary that should lead them to the mythic creature's lair. Accompanied by Tenzig Gombu, a clever and enigmatic young Sherpa guide, and Jazzmin, a talkative myna bird, our heroes confront a host of dangers in the heart of the Himalayas as they seek that legendary beast: the Yeti.Written by

Entirely forgettable. Perhaps the English translation loses something but the dialogue is unconvincing and robs the characters, with the possible exception of Tensing, of any likeability. The 3d animation is quite nicely done and the backdrops have a coherent watercolour style but cheap tricks like a lack of interaction between objects and snow make it all look a bit like a thrown together TV show at times. And asking why your captain is sailing south having just crossed the Atlantic from Canada to the eastern med is just one example of several weird moments that throw you out of the story.
