a bored child might like this movie
19 December 2011 | by ronaldklein1See all my reviews

I saw this movie as a member of the Adult Jury of the festival that awarded it the Best of the Festival prize. I was surprised that it won an award because it was not very clever, and had nothing of interest in the story. It is a film for children aged 3-5, it has colorful costumes and an animal. as i watched it i felt that it was condescending towards its audience. I thought of it as a box of candy on screen, nothing to interest or even challenge the minds of the kids who would be watching it, just something sweet to keep them happy for an hour or so. Considering the quality of the other feature films shown in the festival I was at a loss to understand how it came to win. And what motivated Ben Kinglsey to star in it.
