Editorial Reviews

Egon & Donci tells the tale of two amiable and zany figures who live on a faraway planet. One day, after a space capsule crashes nearby, they decide to go and search for the Blue Planet of the Solar System. With great music and outstanding visuals, this animated film is an adventure no to be missed!

I ordered this movie on Pay-Per-View a month or two ago for my kids to watch (toddlers), because the animation looked relaxing.

Interestingly, there is no comprehensible dialogue in the entire movie. In that, it is somewhat akin to Wall-E or, perhaps, a Cirque du Solei show. It is a Hungarian movie, so I assume the goal was to make a movie that could be enjoyed by people who do not speak Hungarian.

The plot is interesting. A farmer and his very fat cat find some NASA wreckage and the farmer, who likes to tinker in a home-made observatory, quickly throws together a space ship and sets off to find the place where the wreckage came from. Turns out, the man and his cat are aliens (so, strictly speaking, they are neither a human, nor a cat).

I do not want to say too much about it, but I was swept away by the visuals, and the soundtrack was also very well done. I was particularly impressed with the farmer and his cat flying through our solar system checking each planet to see which one was the right one -- I think I actually learned a bit about the planets. Overall, this movie was a great surprise, fully of charm and whimsy. It also had an unmistakable foreign feeling, like Spirited Away or Les Triplettes de Belleville, or even Wallace and Grommit.

I think this movie is good for kids of any age, and adults, too. To be clear, this is a review of the movie, not the DVD itself.

The creators of this precious film really out-did themselves. The big animation companies have NOTHING on these guys. It has heart and soul. The animation is just mind-blowing. The soundtrack is rich and superbly matched as though the music came before the story line. There are quality details in the camera angles and picture that are really unique.
I will buy it for birthday gifts for everyone I know, child and adult, until they all have a copy.

I saw this movie in the morning (with a BAD hangover) as part of the Palm Springs Film Festival. I didn't pay much attention, but I knew I missed something really fun. So I decided to watch it again when it came on streaming.

It's often described as a childish tale, and that's accurate, but I love the beautiful graphics tied in with the fantastic music. It's more of a instrumental journey of a person viewing the earth long after humans have left and how he travels to get here, what happens when he gets here and it does turn a bit eerie, at least to adults, children will appreciate the graphics but the tale does turn dark.

I truly appreciate a movie that can be viewed by children for the fun and adults for something more deep and enjoyed by all.

This is a must see movie. Wildly imaginative, funny and unique. Don't get bored with the first part of it and give up on it. The 2nd half is mind boggling and often breath taking. Get past that there is no dialogue in the film but instead just sounds that the characters make which is a little annoying. Get past that and what you will end up with probably to your satisfaction is a Wallace and Grommit movie on steriods.

This is an animated movie with no voice. This is no hindrance and helps to make this film enjoyable for all ages. It is cute, and does attempt to give a message. A movie that you will want to watch more than one time.
