Beautiful and different
10 April 2020 | by annieco22See all my reviews

This is a beautiful film, and a real gem! I'd even go so far as to say its one of the best animated films I've seen! It's rare that a film that's not produced by one of the major animation studios is so good, but this one is. The story is different, a lesson in life, imaginative, touching, comedic then tense at times, but all at a perfect rate. Animation is spot on, very well produced, and you easily relax into the characters. The only tiny thing I would say is that the music, tho perfect for each scene can be a little loud, so that the voices are hard to hear. Otherwise I would recommend this film, for adults and children alike!
