Yeah but Seymour needs to learn that people can wear make-up to express themselves rather than hide themselves. (Although in the context of the story I got what they were going for). But still, I kinda hoped that Frank Oz would be a bit more cool about extravagant women.
This movie is so cool! I love that it is very high energy but at the same time quite smart and conceptual. The acting performances were not always convincing to me, but the script really makes up for it.
Also thanks movie for making me fantasize about robbing a store with my soon-to-find punk boyfriend.
Very charming in it's animation style and theme. Also, as a Dutch person, I absolutely loved the amount of detail that went into making this feel like The Netherlands: from the dykes to the architecture to the specific plants you'd see in a typical Dutch garden.
Unfortunately though, it suffers a lot from a weak script. It lacks important character moments, which makes many the characters feel unrealistic. But at least the voice actors do a wonderful job.
As a kid, I loved this book when my grandfather read it to me. I really felt that I (a kid) was the intended audience, and I felt taken seriously in the ability of handling serious philosophical ideas. Many of Lobel's books did, this one was just a little more fantastical and somber. I didn't mind.
This film, I did not enjoy so much. First of all, I personally wouldn't read more than one or two stories in one sitting.…
