  • El Biffo's rating of the film Rabi

    Beautiful film, but although it is very pro-tortoise, there appears to be somewhat bad treatment (not brutal, but not good either) of the tortoises used in the making of it. In the screenshot here you can see an actor standing on the tortoise's back while it walks, and there were a couple of other scenes that were slightly disturbing.
