We need more great animation for children
Please stop trying to review children's movies as if they were made for you. Let's ask a child. My son who is seven years old, says he gives it a TEN. Since I have more experience of movies, I have to reserve one star for perfection. But let me tell you how much he loved this movie. He usually hates to be forced to learn Chinese Mandarin, and we watched this in Chinese Mandarin except for a few moments when we tried to see what it was like in French. We had no English option, since I purchased the movie in Taiwan a long time ago. He was riveted and was completely engaged and did not complain once about it being in Chinese, even with all the different accents that they lovingly tried to give all the different characters, just like you would hear in French.
He says, "I loved how the movie was about what if the entire world was destroyed. I liked seeing the little girl and what it would be like to have to travel somewhere without cars or planes."
That's what it's about, folks. A beautiful movie, where the villains are the parents. They are humans. And all it takes to fix the problem is to realize that you can change and say you're sorry. A movie filled with hope and with a focus on the most precious things on the planet, our children.
