  1. Adam Whybray's rating of the film The Little Norse Prince

    2.4 stars. A mini "Hero's journey" in the mold of 'Noggin the Nog', though not quite as wry. It has modest Teutonic power... which is far preferable to the full-on transcendental fascism of, say, 'Star Wars'. The folk myths it is building from seem just as much Slavic as Nordic to me anyway! There is already real heart here, but it has not flowered into the eco-pacifism and folk poetry of Takahata's later works.

  2. smndvdcl's rating of the film The Little Norse Prince

    Modest origins - the signs of genius that Takahata and Miyazaki shared can be seen at this early stage in their animated careers.
