Tito and the Birds

Tito and the Birds ★★★

Tito is beautifully animated, as if a painting with the background containing broad strokes. The story is okay, but flimsily put together. Children might enjoy it. I saw the Portuguese version, but apparently there is an English version as well.

Vegan alert:
-Tito’s mother doesn’t like birds.
-Tito’s mother uses the term “work like a dog”.
-Tito’s friend, Teo, talks about a shield that will zap animals.

Please reference this article in the Boston Herald, but beware that there is a picture of several pieces of bacon (which is indelicate, but less offensive than the WaPo article in general, which basically mocks vegans):

I do not endorse PETA's stance necessarily, but it is something to take into consideration.
