The lovely animation was what initially encouraged me to watch this film... I've got to say, I'm a little disappointed. The story feels very unoriginal and unambitious, even. The characters are very generic. The soundtrack is interesting, but by far not the best I've heard in recent French animation. So overall, it's a slightly below average animated film.
While the dialogue is incredibly corny and the animation could have been better, the rest of the movie separates itself from most of the other CG films with its gorgeous design, fun songs, inventiveness and old-fashioned slapstick, doing enough justice to its interesting concept.
