Le Petit Prince

Mark Osborne France, 2015

Rafael Zen's rating of the film The Little Prince

A by the book film about a book. It does have beautiful sensorial scenes - but they get lost among too many attempts. Do we really have to make everything look scifi, action packed, to make kids get the story? I mean: kids will get bored with anything nowadays, so why giving them what they want instead of pure art as animation? Oh, I know why: because this was made to be a cash machine. I get it, Hollywood, I get it.
