At first I didn’t think I’d be able to watch this one as my speakers are giving up the ghost, but earphones came to the rescue. Obviously this is a simple film, but I enjoyed it nevertheless except for the stupid Alex ‘subplot’ at the end.

Hans Zimme’s cheerful score was a really pleasant surprise after all his superhero trash I recently endured.

The narrator was obviously having a great time recording all the descriptions, but it would have been nice had he said a little more from time to time.
