this is quality indeed
10 October 2006 | by nirimoSee all my reviews

Most animation films are so bad nowadays - they are full of flashing colours and meaningless noise. When children are watching them it's like feeding them white sugar with a spoon.

But still there are some jewels that offer real nourishment for those growing - this film is definitely one.

And this is just to fill line to achieve the minimum amount required. I wonder why they have these requirements - its not at all suitable for people that come from a country where much is said but only very few words are actually used : ) And there's no need to over-analyze everything - people are smart enough to think themselves!
