About the dreams of children and what happens later in real life .
6 November 2018 | by mantsorya13-33-960493See all my reviews

Seen this touching animation last week and found it to be very well done and with a story that brings some thoughts about . . . LIFE . The main character , Lin Shu-Chi is shown from her childhood up to her adult years in flashbacks that show us the relationship of the girl with her relatives , specially her granny , a wise old lady and with her parents and her schoolmates . Being a dreamer at first , she soon befriends a newcomer to the class , Chuang Betty , the daughter of a foreigner pilot and soon the become the best of friends . Lin's granny was a strong and down to earth woman , so was her mother but her dad was another story , always hoping to become rich with loto tickets . Lin's adventures go on with her playmates and , as the years pass by we see how she loses contact with her former self - the imaginative little girl that she once was . Years later , she must take a trip back to her old neighbohood and finds how much things have changed , some for better and some for worse and reunites with some of her old friends and family members . I will not tell the whole story here , but I insist that you go se this movie if possible . When you go , take someone you love with you . It's a little charming , touching , sometimes pathetic but very good story that can tell something about us all in the end . And then you may think a bit and come with a proper response to Lin's first question : " What is happiness ? "
