May be U, but NOT for pre-schoolers!
11 September 2013
Summary: This film, though U certificate, is not comparable to any other I have rented for my pre-schoolers. It has a dark, sinister ambience and ghoulish monsters. Animated though it is, it gave my 5 year old daughter nightmares.
Summary: Really quite dreadful. The artwork is just plain bad. Some dopes will say you don't appreciate it but it is actually just not very good. The animation isn't up to much either. The english version is badly translated and the voice actors sound bored most of the time. Maybe the last half hour is great though but I'll never know because I couldn't take any more by then and put it off. And the story itself is about as flimsy as you can get.
Summary: A nicely-animated French film concerning a cat, a cat burglar, a silent girl, her police-woman mother and a bumbling gang of thieves led by a true criminal. All in just over an hour - quality animation in a bite-sized package and the dub is pretty darn good as well.
Summary: My one big complaint here is that I didn't realise until I had seen the film that the bonus content, which I normally look at after, is where the subtitle options were. However it didn't make much difference in any case, because although I subsequently tried several times, the French audio option sadly did not work. I would have preferred this to the English language dubbing, especially as there were some interesting differences to the English subtitles!
Summary: A charming French animation, recognised by the Academy with a nomination nod, with a fresh take in traditional paint cartooning, a great soundtrack and plenty of suspense, is above all stylish and captivating for children and growups alike.
Summary: Very Good, Beautiful Animations. But to enjoy this film make sure to watch the French with English Subtitles as the English overdub default is don really corny, making it immpossible to enjoy, the mood and manner of the voices are not at all inkeeping with French. Shame, I wonder why they did that to it?
