As good as it gets
If you want grand stories of heroism and bravery, watch Disney. If you wan't beautiful grand exotic stories of travelling and self-discovery, watch Miyazaki. But what do you watch when you wan't to see a nice, funny, cosy and nostalgic cartoon? Hundhotellet.
This movie is a classy whodunit with twists and turns. The main character is Sture, the dog. He goes for a vacation with his friend and ends up at Hotel Rosebud. There a mystic story in true Agatha Christie-style unravels.
The voice acting is wonderful. There are no kids nor any action scenes in this movie, so the shouting usually found in children's movies is nowhere to be found. Instead, we have great narrating by Hasse Alfredsson, which is about a million times better.
The other voices are nice too, all fitting their characters. The stereotype American Mr. Big is very funny, as is the nervous hotel manager.
You wear a smile all the way when watching this movie. It's the perfect movie for the entire family. A comfortable pace and wonderful characters make this movie stand out from all other children's movies today.
