    It’s so nice to hear this film be talked about. I think this may actually be in my top 5 favorite movies of all time. It’s such a simple and sweet, but powerful film. Awesome soundtrack for the film as well. The director also made an amazing short film called Harvey Krumpet about a polish immigrant in Australia. His animation style kind of freaked me out as a kid but it was also an amazing film.
